The Contemplative Minister

Full Product Description

  • For Church Leaders
  • This book helps you to keep hold of deep life
  • You'll find a calling back to a contemplative life and faith
Eugene Peterson's bestselling book The Contemplative Pastor has helped many church leaders to keep a strong spiritual centre to ministry as they are engulfed by the busyness of church life.

The church landscape has now moved on considerably since Peterson's book was published 20 years ago, both in the USA and the UK. Electronic media, multi-parish appointments and the ever increasing stress and demands of modern-day ministry have continued to challenge church leaders aggressively. Today, many are looking for a different way of being in ministry, a better way of serving Christ than the relentless busyness and pressure that have become the norm. But how?

Ian Cowley, Coordinator of Vocations and Spirituality in Salisbury Diocese, offers direction for contemplative leaders in the 21st century, drawing on his South African roots and the influence of contemplative leaders such as Desmond Tutu. He explains practically how to prioritise a relationship with God and lead others into that relationship, creating a shared ministry to allow the leader to nurture faith and spirituality amid the hectic life that is ministry today

The Contemplative Minister by Ian Cowley was published by BRF in June 2015 and is our 12798th best seller. The ISBN for The Contemplative Minister is 9780857463609.
