The Complete Book of Everyday Christianity


The Complete Book of Everyday Christianity

Edited by Robert Banks & R. Paul Stevens

A lot has happened since the The Complete Book of Everyday Christianity was first published in 1997 by IVP. We felt that for the book to be really useful for the reader today, we had to add a few critical articles. Some of them include (author’s names in brackets):

  • Climate Change (Byron Smith)
  • Global Financial Crisis (Albert Erisman)
  • Restorative Justice (Geoff Braughton)
  • Social Media (David Lyon)
  • Shame (Yea Sun E. Kim).

I am thrilled to know that The Complete Book of Everyday Christianity is being relaunched. A well-worn first edition of this book sits next to my office desk and I consult it often. There is no better collection of everyday issues examined from a Christian perspective. A wide variety of topics are addressed with a cleverly balanced combination of academic and practical perspectives, informed by thoughtful biblical and theological reflection. This is a wonderfully useful tool. I am pleased that it will be available to resource a new generation of Christians who are eager to understand more about what it means to follow Christ in every aspect of life.

Our primary call as Christians is to be disciples of Christ and to develop and grow in Christlikeness. But there is a secondary call which is often ignored or forgotten. This is the call to live richly in all aspects of our everyday life, from our family to our friends, from church to community life, and from our hobbies to our work. This book provides rich fodder for how we can engage every aspect of our lives meaningfully as Christians.

The re-launching of The Complete Book of Everyday Christianity is a major Christian publishing event — not only for Christians seeking to live a 24/7 life of discipleship but for Christians sharing with non-Christians. A friend has it on his desk and finds colleagues in his workplace picking it up and reading articles, borrowing it and discussing the issues of everyday life it explores so expertly and suggestively. The articles have not dated since the original publication and the new articles, including “The Financial Crisis” and “Social Media,” are excellent additions. It’s great that editors Banks’ and Stevens’ and their team of authors’ work is easily accessible once again.
