Gathering at God's Table

Full Product Description

In Gathering at God’s Table, Katharine Jefferts Schori’s goal is to explore the once and future mission of the Jesus people. For her, mission has been defined too narrowly as a way of proselytizing or converting non-Christians. Rather, she argues, the meaning of mission is far broader, far more gracious, compassionate and challenging, as typified by the Anglican ‘five marks of mission’:

- to proclaim the good news of the kingdom
- to teach, baptize and nurture new believers
- to respond to human need with loving service
- to seek to transform unjust structures of society
- to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth.

Gathering at God's Table by Schori Katharine Jefferts was published by SPCK in November 2012 and is our 38632nd best seller. The ISBN for Gathering at God's Table is 9780281069460.
