The world constantly throws up new challenges about what it means to be Christian and to live a distinctively Christian lifestyle.
The priest, broadcaster, writer and ethicist Samuel Wells considers some of the biggest contemporary political, social and moral challenges and grapples with them in the light of Christian hope and wisdom.
Under three headings - Engaging the World, Being Human, and Facing Mortality - he probes a wide range of issues including the rise of religious extremism, migration, ecology, social media, sexual identities, inequality, obesity, life stages from childhood to old age, dementia, facing death and much more.
This striking and profoundly wise book sets out to shape a theological imagination and fluency that is grounded in the reality of being human in a suffering world and yet open to transformation by the life and wisdom of God.
SAM WELLS is Vicar of St Martin in the Fields, London, and is the author of many acclaimed books. Previously he was Dean of Chapel and Research Professor of Christian Ethics at Duke University, North Carolina.
"Sam Wells arguably has the liveliest, most agile, best informed, critically disciplined mind in the entire Christian community. And he has a baptized heart of honesty, compassion, and passion to match his baptized mind. In this book he ranges over a cluster of complex issues and at every turn his sound judgment instructs us as he moves easily from life to Scripture and back through church tradition. This book will serve many of us well who live with daily perplexities that admit no resolution." —Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary
