Walk This Way

Posted 22 Jun 2020

This new book is available now from Church Society.

For many centuries, people have learned what it means to be a Christian through the Apostles’ Creed, the Ten Commandments, and the Lord’s Prayer. Billions of people have been baptised into the faith, regularly attended church, and celebrated the Lord’s Supper, but they haven’t always understood what they are all about.If you need help to really get going or inspiration to continue on your own journey as a Christian, this book is for you. It takes a careful look at those major signposts along the way, and lights the path ahead with clarity and grace. With questions to ponder and prayers to pray, this is an ideal way to spend a few minutes each day on your own, or an hour a week in a group with friends, thinking about the key elements of classic Christianity.

The heart of the book is a series of guided reflections on each of the core texts: the creed, the commandments and the Lord’s Prayer. Alongside these, short chapters introduce the church and the sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s supper. Finally, the book concludes with an updated version of a short catechism based on the 39 Articles, and first published by Church Society in the 19th century.

WALK THIS WAY is an excellent resource for confirmation preparation, an ideal gift for a new believer, but also a great refresher for all Christians wanting to think more about their faith, life and prayer.

What people are saying:
“ Walk This Way is an excellent way to discover or re-discover the riches of the Christian faith. There is so much to explore in the familiar words we may have heard many times before but never really thought about, and this book unpacks them with clarity and grace. I heartily recommend it for everyone looking into confirmation and for anyone wanting a refresher in the foundations of what we believe.”
Rod Thomas, Bishop of Maidstone.

“This excellent book will help establish new believers in the faith, refresh longstanding saints in the truths of God’s Word, guide those who are being trained for various ministries in the church and be a valuable resource for clergy and other leaders who are training them.”
Andrew Cheah, Dean of St Mary’s Cathedral, Kuala Lumpur

“In the world today there is an urgent need for good, basic teaching on the essentials of the Christian faith. This book makes a big contribution towards meeting this need. Its various sections give a commentary, discussion questions and prayer suggestions. It will be of value to young and old, and especially to confirmation and youth groups.”
Ben Kwashi, Bishop of Jos and General Secretary of GAFCON.

“To remember who God is and the things he’s done, enhances our strength and keeps our hearts in the right place. This is why Walk This Way is an answer to a great need of God’s people, particularly for Anglicans. It is a pastoral book dedicated to reminding us of the biblical doctrine of our faith — helping to keep our spiritual vitality and fill us with passion for Christ and the gospel.”
Enrique Lago, Bishop of Concepción, Chile.

“It is essential for all Christians to learn doctrine. Whether reading alone or discussing in small groups, this book provides useful, readable chapters that can form a basis for understanding some of the most important aspects of the Christian faith.”
Kirsten Birkett, The Latimer Trust and St Paul’s, Hadley Wood.
