Abundant Life: order yours now

Following the success of Exploring the Beatitudes published last autumn, a new booklet written by Bishop Steven looks again at what it means to be a Christ-like Church… and what it means to be human.

Our world faces many challenges. As such, the world and our nation need us to be the best Church we can be. We are called to be a Christ-like Church; the Church of the Beatitudes.

Whereas Exploring the Beatitudes was written for use by small groups, you don’t need to be part of a small group to engage Abundant Life. In this booklet, Bishop Steven draws on one of the most powerful stories in the Gospels, the raising of Lazarus. It’s a story that reveals Jesus as contemplative, compassionate and courageous.

Bishop Steven offers us a reflection for 18 days (six on each theme of contemplative, compassionate and courageous). There are prayers and reflections for each ‘seventh day’, ending with a question, a thought or a prayer to take with you.

A resource for young families has also been launched. Co-published as part of the hugely popular GodVenture children’s’ series, GodVenture through the story of Lazarus is a 32 page, full colour family activity sticker book designed to encourage families to dwell in the word and explore the Lazarus story together in an accessible way.

Both publications are available to order online, starting at £2.50 incl. p&p.
