Simply written and inspiring - much here for any Christian
on 6 September 2016
Some of Rowan Williams' books require a lot of intellectual concentration. This doesn't. It is a simply-written but profound and inspiring book of aspects of Christian discipleship and what discipleship means in today's world. Each chapter uses as its starting point a passage from the New Testament. After an opening chapter on the general meaning of discipleship, there are chapters on:
- faith, hope and love
- faith in society
- life in the spirt.
This is a book which can be read in a single session but is better savoured more slowly, pausing to ponder and to reflect on one's own life and experience. There is much here to inspire, and challenge, any Christian. Thoroughly recommended.
