Growth in Christlikeness is a goal for all Christians and especially for those in leadership. But the images of Christ that have become the institutional norm refer to a model of pastoral ministry that seems to allow no scope for innovation or eccentricity.
In this riveting book, Andrew Mayes explores how the first-century setting of Jesus reveals his identity as builder, hermit, rebel, mystic, reveler, jester, iconoclast, revealer, enigma, liberator, traveler, mentor, brother, and trailblazer. The aim of Another Christ is to encourage us to see how these images can inform the practice and spirituality of leadership today. Each chapter ends with a set of penetrating questions and ideas for further reading.
