In this follow-up to Incarnational Ministry: Being with the Church, Samuel Wells explores what it means for Christians and churches to engage with the world.

Drawing on the Gospels, Acts, and personal insights gleaned from more than two decades in ministry, he shows how 'being with' others includes experiences of presence, attention, mystery, delight, participation, partnership, enjoyment and glory.

His vivid narratives and wise reflections will help Christian readers better understand how to be with all kinds of people outside the church, including:

* Being with Seekers
* Being with Those of Other Faiths
* Being with the Hostile
* Being with Neighbours
* Being with Government
* Being with the Excluded

Review quote

'At the interface of critical academic reflection and faithful church theology, we have no better voice than that of Sam Wells. He invites us to rethink, from the ground up, our abiding temptation to condescending help and service to others. He compellingly renders a more excellent way toward the transformative with.' -- Walter Brueggemann This book is one of a handful of books which I have to keep looking up from the page and starring into horizon - it's a Things Are Going To Have To Change book. It's a book which I read and find a resonance not only in my head and my heart, but deep in my soul. A book that engages acting and longing, praying and imagining. It is a great gift to the church, and I sense, if we take time to obey, might mean things aren't ever the same. -- Chris Russell, Advisor to the Archbishop of Canterbury on Evangelism and Witness In this wonderful book Sam Wells reflects on how 'being with' is profoundly missional. As one would expect of anything written by him, it is full of deep wisdom and insight, inspiring faith and love. Every Christian should read it. -- John Inge
