The Contemplative Struggle: Radical discipleship in a broken world [9780857469823]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

How do we embrace and work out our call to be disciples in a broken world?

In The Contemplative Struggle Ian Cowley sets the central themes of the gospel of John alongside each other - abiding in Christ, conflict, light and darkness, obedience, loving one another - and explores how these can be reconciled in daily life.

Drawing on his experience of living in his native South Africa during the apartheid era and challenging understandings of contemplative prayer and spirituality as essentially inward-looking, he highlights the urgent need for Christians to be active in bringing transformation to a suffering world and paints a compelling picture of radical discipleship for today.

'Just as we are all meant to be contemplatives and to hear the voice of God in our lives, we are all meant to answer God's call to be his partners in transfiguring the world. This calling, this encounter with God, is always to send us into the midst of human suffering.' Archbishop Desmond Tutu

AUTHOR: Ian Cowley is an Anglican priest who has served in parish ministry in South Africa, Sheffield, Cambridge and Peterborough. From 2008 to 2016 he was Coordinator of Spirituality and Vocations in the Diocese of Salisbury, where he set up and developed the Contemplative Minister programme. He is the author of five books on spirituality, discipleship and the local church.
