In this follow-up to Incarnational Ministry: Being with the Church, Samuel Wells explores what it means for Christians and churches to engage with the world.
Drawing on the Gospels, Acts, and personal insights gleaned from more than two decades in ministry, he shows how ‘being with’ others includes experiences of presence, attention, mystery, delight, participation, partnership, enjoyment and glory.
His vivid narratives and wise reflections will help Christian readers better understand how to be with all kinds of people outside the church, including:
• Being with Seekers
• Being with Those of Other Faiths
• Being with the Hostile
• Being with Neighbours
• Being with Government
• Being with the Excluded
