Product description

All too often Church leaders may want to work cooperatively with others, and yet find themselves frustrated. Ian Tomlinson considers the difficulties and challenges faced by any incumbent wishing to interpret and understand what is going on in their congregation and parish, and why it might be happening.

Engaging with the work of Wesley Carr, the author brings theory and practice into conversation by responding to each of Carr's 'propositions' with a 'critical incident' from the author's own parish experience.

Product Reviews

"Wesley Carr is yet to be acknowledged as one of the most creative and positive theologians of our times. Tomlinson’s clear analysis offers the beginning of such an appreciation. It will be like a breath of fresh air to all who seek encouragement in the task of Christian ministry."-- Alastair Redfern, Bishop of Derby
