Funeral of Richard Bewes
What makes a Christian worker? What does it mean to give your life to Christian work? Richard Bewes' latest book, Equipped to Serve , is an answer that was built from a lifetime of ministry.
Bewes was the rector of All Souls Church in the centre of London from until his retirement in I can't think of anyone who has Richard Bewes' capacity for the telling detail; who is his equal in the helpful development of an idea and in the apt illustration drawn both from wide reading and a wide experience of life and Christian ministry.
Many a time I was not only moved, but moved to tears. I find myself renewed in appreciation and understanding of the Cross, more deeply convinced and in love with the Bible, more penitent and regretful of my past and present, more determined about prayer, more knowledgeable, more equipped - and more aware of Jesus.
About Richard Bewes
A truly great and effective piece of writing! Richard Bewes has produced another treasure-a masterpiece of practical Christianity A special gift. Richard Bewes is a long-distance runner and a true soldier of the Lord I would urge all to read it and obtain extra copies for others.
This is a superb book, that does exactly what the title promises! It equips you to serve. I have read this over the past few weeks, one short chapter at a time, as part of my devotional reading.
Every chapter has managed to be stimulating, edifying, practical and Christ-centred. Some may think it is a bit 'bitty' but I have enjoyed every page. Richard covers a wide range of subjects, from reading the Bible in public to 'Standing in the Gap'.
I hope that everyone in my church gets this book - it would make an ideal training book for small groups. I leave you with one quote "John Chrysostom, of Constantinople, said that just as a beautiful coat only look its best when worn on a body, so the Scriptures - even though wonderful when proclaimed in public - are far more stupendous when they are being lived out by the people who hear them!
