A Practical Christianity
Working On Transforming Our Lives
by Jane Shaw
Publisher:SPCK (Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge)
Why does Jesus advise his disciples to shake the dust off their feet at places where they are not welcomed? Perhaps at the heart of this lies a preparedness for a life of rejection and alienation in this world. We may be at times unwelcomed, so this is utterly wise. Using this brave proposal Jane Shaw maps out for us a practical faith. This message is a timeless if uncomfortable one in an era of growing cultural hostility and cynicism. This is a subversive call away from wanting to be liked, to a bolstered existence where conviction and courage, strengthen our life of faith.
There are historical threads as well as a contemporary feel to this writing. In five chapters a considerable ask is graciously laid out before us. This book is thought-provoking and could be transformative, if fully inhabited. Great ideals..... Here’s to living the life!
