Handbook of Christian Ministry
The follow up to Bishop John's bestselling The Life and Work of a Priest in an easy to navigate format
This handbook aims to help any Christian committed to their role as a follower and fellow-worker with Christ to be more effective in their ministry. It offers practical suggestions for faithful practice in numerous areas, ranging from Apologetics to Worship and beyond. The suggestions arenâ€™t â€˜hints and tipsâ€™ as such; rather we are encouraged to reflect on what underlies our actions.
