Following Jesus as Pilgrims, Servants and Prophets in the Twenty First Century: Letters to My Grandchildren


    In this book Michael P. Hornsby-Smith aims to encourage a commitment to the pursuit of social justice on the part of young people of Generation Y, i.e. six-formers, students, and young people generally. It has been written as a series of letters to my grandchildren with the intention of encouraging them and others of their generation to follow Jesus as faithful pilgrims, conscientious servants, and challenging prophets. It follows the well-known pastoral strategy with two chapters each on (a) articulating the social reality both domestically and globally, (b) subjecting it to social analysis as to causes of needs and injustices, then to (c) scriptural and theological analysis, and finally (d) offering suggestions for responding with social action.
