Stories are at the heart of how God's kingdom is revealed both in scripture and in contemporary church ministry. This volume draws on these kingdom stories to extend the conversation between practical theology and contemporary organizational studies.
Responding to the huge increase in interest in leadership and organisational theory as a means to understanding ministry, Vaughan S. Roberts shows how a more qualitative, story-led approach to thinking about leadership can offer a valuable perspective on ministry for both individuals and churches.
"This is an extraordinarily generative book. Well organised, lucidly written, creatively researched...The invitation into exploring what kind of God we believe in and how telling this story might refresh all of our stories is breathtakingly liberating. This is a book that deserves to be widely read and put to use...." -- James Woodward, Sarum College, UK
"Vaughan Roberts invites his readers to participate in the storied nature of living. His book points us towards pathways for sharing our stories, making meaning from that shared telling, and discerning from that the signs of God's redemptive actions." -- Elaine Graham, University of Chester, UK
