Restoring Our Identity And Living Out Our Calling
by Michael Lloyd & Rachel Atkinson
Rachel Hughes, Senior Pastor of Gas Street Church Birmingham
The brilliance of this book is that it approaches this most important subject via the head and the heart. It is full of deep insights and practical wisdom and a must-read for anyone wanting to walk more fully themselves, or lead others, into the freedom that comes from knowing whose image we’ve been created in.
Rev Dr Rich Johnson, Vicar of All Saints Worcester & National Leader of New Wine England
This is a profoundly timely, comprehensive and helpful book for the people of God as we seek to navigate our cultural moment and embrace a more beautiful vision of what it is to be human.
Rev Will Van Der Hart, Wellbeing Chaplain & Director of Mind and Soul Foundation
Rachel and Michael offer the reader a compelling vision of the restored life, but this book is an invitation more than a set of directions . . . Image Bearers leaves you with a sense of spaciousness, not judgement and ultimately frames your healing within the power, love and benevolence of God.
Jitesh Patel, Assistant Director, St Mellitus College East Midlands
While some books concentrate on theory and theology, and others on experience and practice, what is so appreciated about this book is its refusal to choose between the two, but to plumb the depths of both . . . Take this book seriously, allow yourself space and time to live in it slowly, and I believe it will change your life.
Simon Ponsonby, St Aldates Oxford
Ruth Miller walked closely with God and walked closely with people. She had a remarkable ministry bringing God’s restoring love to scarred places in wounded souls. Theologians Dr Rachel Atkinson and Dr Michael Lloyd, in this labour of love, have transformed Ruth’s assorted lectures, notes, letters and testimonies, into a wonderful pastoral and practical theology for helping us fractured ones journey in Christ towards soul wholeness.
