Ambition: What Jesus Said About Power, Success and Counting Stuff [9780281080120]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

In the church at the moment there is a renewed emphasis on missional growth, both in numbers and in regard to spiritual depth. But resources are few and to evaluate `effectiveness' we see an increasing adoption of scales and measures to test and encourage that growth (for example the Renewal and Reform agenda in the Church of England). Though good and to be welcomed, the challenge for church leaders is to be ambitious for the Kingdom, whilst keeping hold of their souls. This book will examine biblical perspectives on ambition and success, particularly from the point of view of Jesus and the gospels. It will affirm what is praiseworthy in the current emphasis on church growth, whilst challenging the creep of more secular assumptions about what it looks like to be successful.

AUTHOR: 

The Revd Dr Emma Ineson is Bishop of Penrith. She was formerly Principal of Trinity College, Bristol, where she taught practical theology and spirituality, and Chaplain at the Lee Abbey community. These roles have helped her understand and appreciate the breadth and depth of the Church and, being married to a vicar, she has seen first-hand both the joys and challenges of parish ministry on the ground.

Emma has been a member of General Synod, the Church of England Evangelical Council, and the Faith and Order Commission. She is on the 2020 Lambeth Conference Design Group and Chairs the CPAS Council of Reference.
