I wish to commend to fellow missioners my Chichester predecessor John Twisleton’s new book Meet Jesus – a call to adventure which contains group study material and is published next month by Bible Reading Fellowship.
Many Christians know that the person of Jesus should be centre stage, a life changing influence at all levels of activity. But turning ‘knowing’ into ‘doing’ remains a challenge for us as Church leaders to instil into our congregations.
Drawing on his own faith journey and pastoral experience, John provides real-life practical grounding and clear, realistic advice to help move Christians forward. Meet Jesus stands apart as an invitation to Christian believing wholehearted about the Church, intellectually rigorous and spiritually inspiring.
I gladly commend it as serving the forthcoming Christmas focus on Jesus and would suggest there is value in following its group study material in the New Year. Premier Christian Radio is making it their Lent focus.
I am enclosing an order form for your use.
With every blessing
Chichester Diocesan Mission and Renewal Advisor
