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.

Press Reviews

Andrew Mayes has given the clergy twelve models of Christ-like formation for re-envisioning ministry. His reflections show us how it is in reflective prayer that we discover Christ’s vision of unity – silence becomes a prayer tool for every priest committed first to hearing God. Splendid teaching . . . I look forward to returning to it again and again.

- Dr Graham Smith, Dean, St George’s College Jerusalem
