The title of this book is 'Practising Jesus'. Chris Beales, its author, has had a life-long passion to make a real difference in the lives of ordinary people both in Great Britain and overseas. The challenges that have driven him are these: how to make sense of God and Christian faith in today’s world and how to live out the gospel in the midst of all the pressures and compromises of daily life. He is concerned to explore what it means to 'practise Jesus', how this impinges on political, economic and social issues, how to relate positively and creatively to people of different faiths and cultures - and how to find effective ways of working together to build a better world for everyone. It's not easy. But Jesus never said it would be.
