The Church Jesus Prayed For (John 17)
1 in stock
In John 17 Jesus prays for the church. Michael Cassidy contrasts Jesus’s vision with the church’s mundane reality, asking “What should we do?” and “How can we amend our ways?”.
For most of his ministry, Michael has been wracked by the discrepancy between the church Jesus portrays, and the church in daily experience. This is an enormously readable and attractive book, the fruit of reflection over 35 years which is permeated with Michael’s generous, engaging spirit and shot through with insights into the human condition. The text is studded with dozens of luminous and engaging anecdotes.
