Explores the implications of "being with" for the ministry of the church. "With," says Samuel Wells, "is the most important word in the Christian faith." In the Trinity, we see the eternal persons of the Godhead being with each other. In the Gospels, we see Jesus being with the people he encounters, mediating God's grace to them with his own incarnational presence. Those in ministry, as Wells shows in this book, are also called to the task of being with: with God, with the church, and with the created world and those who dwell in it. Wells elaborates on the concept of being with in eight dimensions: presence, attention, mystery, delight, participation, partnership, enjoyment, and glory. His vivid narratives and wise reflections challenge readers to deeper discipleship and more vital ministry as they explore what it means to be with the troubled, the hurt, the afflicted, the challenged, the dying-and all who are embraced by the church's incarnational ministry.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Justin Welby
-- Archbishop of Canterbury
"Sam Wells, one of the finest priest-theologians of our time, weaves together deep theology with the practical heart and skill of a pastor. This book is a must-read and a challenge for all who want to grow in their understanding and practice of being Christians together, following the God who chose to journey with us in Jesus."

Elaine Heath
-- Duke Divinity School
"In this beautiful volume Sam Wells lays out a path for us to become more fully present to God, self, others, and creation. Using the phrase 'being with, ' Wells guides readers to take up a truly incarnational stance that is fundamental to the way of Christ."
