Dreaming Of Home
Full Product Description
Drawing on his own experience of the 'homecoming' journey, he considers how we can go about finding our true home within God's eternal kingdom, how to identify the forces within us that may hinder this search, and the importance of churches offering a welcoming home to all.
he sub-title of this book gives a clue to its content, but with such an experienced and good author and speaker as Michael Mitton, it is merely a clue because his exploration of the subject is focused and detailed. Homecoming does not simply refer to that lovely feeling of getting back home after a hard day at work of after a holiday, but to the sense within oneself of ease, fulfilment, rightness and completion.
Each chapter concludes with questions for personal reflection or group discussion and the book also features an imaginative retelling of the parable of the Prodigal Son, addressing some of the issues raised through a story-based approach.
Explores the theme of 'home' as a fundamentally important concept for both faith and mission. Woven through with a retelling of the story of the Prodigal Son, this book shows how 'home' resonates in our culture, including through film and story.
Dreaming Of Home by Michael Mitton was published by Bible Reading Fellowship in May 2012 and is our 19304th best seller. The ISBN for Dreaming Of Home is 9781841018775.

Dreaming of HomeCarole Burrows, via The Good Book Stall
The sub-title of this book gives a clue to its content, but with such an experienced and good author and speaker as Michael Mitton, it is merely a clue because his exploration of the subject is focussed and detailed. Homecoming does not simply refer to that lovely feeling of getting back home after a hard day at work of after a holiday, but to the sense within oneself of ease, fulfilment, rightness and completion. As a Christian we are taught to try to achieve wholeness but this is never easy. The Church has its role too, of being a home, a family, a community. This discussion of homecoming operates on two levels – the personal and the church community, because in both areas starting from the best possible place enables the onward and outward looking journey to be accomplished with greater purpose and effect.
There are questions and reflections for either personal use or for group discussion, and at a time when many churches are examining their mission, and individuals are looking at a post-modern society, this is a timely book to read and then act upon.

"Problematic or pleasurable, the concept of 'home' is deeply embedded in most of us. With typically disarming honesty and wisdom Michael explores this natural icon from personal and theological angles. A warm and welcoming book that will comfort, coax and challenge many, many readers." - Adrian Plass
"I couldn't recommend this book more highly. It contains a critical message for the church today in how to engage with culture, and particularly those who are spiritually searching for 'home'." - From the foreword by Pete Hughes
