Practitioner Series

While we delight to serve the academic community, our mission is to enable the global church to better engage in God’s mission in its very diverse contexts. To do this we seek to bring practitioners and academics together. Our desire is that this series will bridge the gap that sometimes exists between, on the one hand, Christian leaders and mission practitioners and, on the other, Christian researchers. Where better to start than with a fresh look at what is required of leadership in Mission and the Church? Dr Paul Bendor-Samuel MBE, MRCGP, Executive Director, Oxford Centre for Mission Studies (Previously Regnum Resources for Mission Series)

  7. On Eagles' Wings

    On Eagles' Wings

    This book introduces the concept of mentoring, looks at historical and biblical models and then gives examples of being mentored and acting as a mentor in the church and in the workplace.

David Cranston writes unashamedly as a Christian for whom no account of mentoring would be complete without placing it in the biggest context of all – that of the relationship between humans and God. John Lennox, Professor of Mathematics, University of Oxford This gem of a book emerges from a lifetime’s reflection on the vital, but neglected topic of mentoring. Reverend Richard Cunningham, Director UCCF I have read this delightful book almost in a stretch. It is thoroughly biblical, very personal and full of practical insights.
