Summary
The faith we proclaim on Sunday is just as relevant to the rest of the week. However, too often the teaching and support that church life offers us can seem aimed at deepening our personal commitment to Christ and our involvement in church activities, rather than enabling us to live out our faith at work and in the world.

We need to close the gap between sacred and secular, and that’s what this book aims to help us do. Each chapter identifies an issue, explores how we might respond and encourages us – through practical ideas, stories, humour, quotes, Scripture, questions and prayer – to seek to make a difference.

‘This is a very good book by a very exceptional leader. John Pritchard puts himself into what he writes, and the result is accessible, encouraging and fun, with a steel core that not only makes one think but takes one back to the face of Christ and the realities of Christian discipleship. John is never cheaply comfortable but always reassuringly real. I am very glad to have read Living Faithfully.’
Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury

‘Wise, honest and realistic, Living Faithfully joins the dots in a lively and compelling way between the core of Christian teaching and contemporary human experience.’
Christina Rees, broadcaster and writer

- Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury

Wise, honest and realistic, Living Faithfully joins the dots in a lively and compelling way between the core of Christian teaching and contemporary human experience.

- Christina Rees, broadcaster and writer

[John Pritchard’s] style is easy, readable, and funny. Important things are wrapped in digestible prose . . . [But he] does not offer any easy answers, and rightly so. The reader is properly left to work out what the questions raised might mean in his or her context. What does it mean to follow Christ in your everyday life? Working out the answer is what we might call “theology”.

- Church Times

In this short, well-organized, rich and shrewd book, the Bishop of Oxford provides even the weary traveller with a lifetime’s worth of reflection and down-to-earth advice.
