Shaped by the Spirit: Being Formed Into an Outward-Focused People

Kate Pocklington

Shun self-help in favour of spiritual-help and become the other-focussed disciple that Jesus is inviting you to be in this accessible and practical book.

In recent years, the Church in the West has witnessed a growing hunger to engage in spiritual disciplines that help us become more like Jesus. And yet, if our practices cause us to look inwards without looking outwards, then we can unwittingly distance ourselves from him instead.

Jesus was inherently other-focussed, and in this immensely practical book, Kate Pocklington invites us to explore why being formed by the Spirit is only half of the picture.

We are formed by the Spirit, formed through our experiences with others and formed for the sake of God's mission in the world. Together we will see how God - the grand recycler - wants to use every part of our past and personality to shape us into other-focussed people.
