CHURCH AND COUNTRYSIDE

CHURCH AND COUNTRYSIDE: INSIGHTS FROM RURAL THEOLOGY BY TIM GIBSON

Perhaps the most relentlessly theological book on rural ministry we’ve read (that’s a compliment!). It’s written by an Englishman, and therefore focuses mainly on the English countryside. Gibson discusses the centrality of community in a rural context and focuses on the ways in which Christians can live from their shared experience of the Eucharist in order to deepen and bless their communities. There’s lots to learn here, even though we don’t agree with everything.
