Publisher's Synopsis

A Nazareth Manifesto is an eloquent and impassioned ecumenical proposal for re-envisioning Christianity's approach to social engagement away from working "for" the people to being "with" them.

  • Questions the effectiveness of the current trend of intervention as a means of fixing the problems of people in distressed and disadvantaged circumstances
  • Argues that Jesus spent 90% of his life simply being among the people of Nazareth, sharing their hopes and struggles, therefore Christians should place a similar emphasis on being alongside people in need rather than hastening to impose solutions
  • Written by a respected priest and broadcaster and renowned Christian ethicist and preacher
  • Supported by historical, contemporary, exegetical and anecdotal illustrations
