Dares clergy to be subversive in their prophetic and countercultural witness, following in the footsteps of Jesus who was gutsy, provocative, feisty and forever breaking out of boxes and titles. The Archbishop of Canterbury has said that one of the priorities for the church at this time is to 're-imagine ministry'. This book helps us on that process and journey. Growth in Christlikeness is a goal for all Christians and especially for those in leadership. But the images of Christ that have become the institutional norm refer to a model of pastoral ministry that seems to allow no scope for innovation or eccentricity. In this riveting book, Andrew Mayes explores how the first century setting of Jesus reveals his identity as builder; hermit; rebel; mystic; reveller; jester; iconoclast; revealer and enigma; liberator; traveller; and mentor, brother and trail-blazer. The aim of Another Christ is to encourage us to see how these images can inform the practice and spirituality of leadership today, and to this end, each chapter ends with a set of penetrating questions and ideas for further reading.
