Praying For England
Full Product Description
The priestly role as mediator before God of society’s deepest pains, losses, joys and irresolvable anxieties is here reimagined, and brought freshly to life though moving narratives of pastoral encounter. Above all, the priest is seen as one who goes on ‘praying for England’ in decisive but often uncelebrated ways, prayer being the chief measure and test of the priest’s representative role.
This is a deceptively simple volume - theologically accessible but often deeply moving and profound. In it a new vision is sketched of how Christian priesthood can go forward today with humility, understated dignity, and spiritual power. It will be of special interest to English churchpeople in an ‘established’ setting, but is written no less with an ecumenical and international readership in mind.
