Global in scope, but homing in on the role ordinary people play in conflict and division, Reconciliation enables Christians to engage confidently in a ministry bequeathed to us by Christ himself.
The audiobook issues a vibrant call to the church to support and strengthen relationships amongst church members, to cross borders to build connections with different denominations and to maintain open attitudes towards our neighbours from other religions and ideologies.
Forty biblically based meditations introduce topics such as impediments to reconciliation, risking the self, humility and self-criticism, radical openness to the other and peace with justice. Questions for reflection are included, making Reconciliation suitable for use at weekly gatherings or for everyday devotion during Lent.
