John Pritchard encourages British Christians to bridge the sacred-secular divide in his latest book – ‘Living Faithfully’.
Sunday morning teaching and church attitude often encourages us to deepen our relationship with God and become more and more engulfed in church related activities. John wants to reserves this over-heard message and promotes an outward looking faith living their faith in the world as much as at church.
John Pritchard – everyone’s favourite Bishop – uses gripping story-telling, bible readings, thoughtful questions, insightful prayer and light-hearted humour to carry his important message. If there’s one book Christians should read this year, it’s ‘Living Faithfully’.
“This is a very good book by a very exceptional leader… I am very glad to have read Living Faithfully.” – Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury.
John Pritchard is Bishop of Oxford and was formerly Bishop of Jarrow. He was archdeacon of Canterbury and, before that, Warden of Cranmer Hall, Durham. He has served in parishes in Birmingham and Taunton, and has been Diocesan Youth Officer for Bath and Wells Diocese.
Books by John include The Intercessions Handbook, The Second Intercessions Handbook, Beginning Again, How to Pray, Living Easter Through the Year, How to Explain your Faith, The Life and Work of a Priest and Going to Church: A user’s guide. He is married to Wendy and has two married daughters.
Living Faithfully by John Pritchard was published by SPCK in April 2013 and is our 10322nd best seller. The ISBN for Living Faithfully is 9780281067626.
Practicalities, theology, Bible, narrative, prayer and quotations all fill this title with an energy and faithfulness to challenge all readers. This would be particularly helpful for a young Christian as it offers so much breadth, insight and wisdom. Bishop John is brilliantly practical and faithful in his trademark writing style.
God is re-centred as the purpose, glory and Lord of all in this. Pritchard stitches together the big invitation of God, alongside life's failings, hopes, truth and tragedy.
The early section on living gracefully is a particular favourite for me: inviting that we "stay close to the grace-giver". The resources that are at the close of each chapter are roomy, provocative and add so much to each theme. Bishop John makes a compelling case for closing the gap between the sacred and the secular. This is a moving multi-dimensional approach to following Jesus with greater commitment, grit and grace. This is a great SPCK production in the design detail, format and completed product.
This is earthed, real and yet full of godly wisdom. It's easy reading but all about challenging living!
“This is a very good book by a very exceptional leader. John Pritchard puts himself into what he writes, and the result is accessible, encouraging and fun, with a steel core that not only makes one think but takes one back to the face of Christ and the realities of Christian discipleship. John is never cheaply comfortable but always reassuringly real.” – Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury.
“Wise, honest and realistic, Living Faithfully joins the dots in a lively and compelling way between the core of Christian teaching and contemporary human experience.” – Christina Rees, broadcaster and writer.
