Lighting the Beacons

Today's Price £12.48



Product Description

Emerging from the author’s recurring vision of little lights coming on in the darkest places, Lighting the Beacons seeks to expand our horizons by daring us to believe the realities of heaven can break into the present day.

It is the Holy Spirit who brings hope by communicating love from the heart of God – the God who is always waiting, always longing to welcome us home. Being warmed by God’s love kindles the flame of faith in our hearts. This flame may become a beacon; it may become a tiny candle! The work of God is always fragile, but as we see in the life of Mary, obedience and prayer can have the most profound effects. We may never know how our small pinprick of light has helped someone engulfed in darkness to find their way.

Bishop Jill’s wise, passionate book is illustrated throughout with stories from contemporary culture, scripture and the writings of the saints. It captivatingly conveys how, as beacons of God’s light and love, we can help to bring heaven to earth at this very moment – and transform our society into ‘a land of hope and glory’!

Dr Jill Duff is the Anglican Bishop of Lancaster, holding the brief for mission, evangelism and church planting across Lancashire. She is also an Honorary Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of St Asaph, Church in Wales; a Trustee of New Wine, of Premier Christian Media Trust, and of Redeeming Our Communities. Previously, as founding Director of St Mellitus College North West, she taught mission, evangelism, New Testament and ecclesiology at one of the largest ordination colleges in the country.

She has a first-class Theology degree from Oxford University, a DPhil in Chemistry from Oxford, and an MA in Natural Sciences from Cambridge. Her parish ministry was in deprived urban areas across Liverpool Diocese, and she is passionate about the gospel crossing boundaries, and enabling authentic accessible evangelism.

Jill is a widely sought speaker within the Church of England and wider networks and regularly invited to contribute to ordination retreats, theological colleges, ministerial fellowships and clergy ministerial development, in dioceses across the UK, including the Church of Ireland.

Before ordination, she worked in research and management in a multi-national oil company, and she has an enduring interest in the world of work and in communicating the hope of the gospel in everyday language with the aim of transforming society.
