Beginning with a central understanding that ministry is essentially about 'being with' the other, whether that other is God, the church, friends or strangers in the world, he explores the theme of 'being with' in a number of important spiritual, pastoral and ethical contexts.
- Being with God, alone and with others
- Being with oneself
- Being with the creation
- Being with others in the everyday
- Being with the troubled
- Being with those who have lost a sense of self
- Being with the dying
This book, and its forthcoming companion, Incarnational Mission, develops ideas first explored in Sam Wells' highly acclaimed and seminal book, A Nazareth Manifesto.
