Writing from his own experience, Bishop Alan Abernethy examines how his years of leadership in the church caused him to lose sight of the original awe that called him to his faith. In this very personal book, Bishop Abernethy looks at the idea of God without the institutions, hierarchy and bureaucracy, instead refocusing on the figure of Jesus at the heart of the Bible. Through his struggle with mental health and his diagnosis with prostate cancer, he has come to find the message of Jesus in the difficult, dark and chaotic parts of life. Jesus was born into a world that was messy and uncertain, and did not fix it, but instead blessed the people around him. Using examples of biblical stories and examining the ways in which God shows himself in our ordinary lives, this is a call to bring blessing into the mess of the everyday world. Alan Abernethy is the Church of Ireland Bishop of Connor in Northern Ireland. Ordained as a bishop in 2007, he has served in ministry in Ireland from 1981. He is married to Liz and they have two grown-up children. He has written two books, Fulfilment and Frustration (2000) and Shadows on a Journey (2011), both published by Columba.
