Synopsis

There can be few theologians better placed than Stephen Pickard to address the trinity of theology, community and discipleship. Stephen is one of the most astute theologians in the world today, and his writing emerges out of a deep spirituality formed in the Anglican tradition, a grounded ecclesiology of real depth, and a considerable gift for offering the mind and wisdom of the reflective practitioner. In this pastoral and prescient volume, Stephen engages with a wide range of issues, seeking to articulate the calling of the church to be the embodiment of a deeper theology, community life and discipleship. The essays move effortlessly from systematic theology to spirituality, and from mysticism to evangelism. Stephen is unquestionably one of the finest reflective theologians to have emerged from Australia in recent years. This book, and his work, rightly place him at the forefront of Anglican theologians worldwide. Rev Canon Prof Martyn Percy Principal, Ripon College Cuddesdon & the Oxford Ministry Course Stephen Pickard is one of the most creative and interesting theologians of this generation. This collection of essays is a must for anyone wanting insight into the current challenges facing Christians in the modern world. Theology, Community and Discipleship are woven together in ways that will surprise some and stimulate us all. Writing out of an Anglican tradition it is theology hard at work in the nitty gritty of daily life that engages across different christian traditions. It is very good to have the new previously unpublished essays set alongside earlier publications. This is engaged and contextual theology at its best.
