If you like knitting together biblical, theological, spiritual, missional, philosophical and sociological resources, then you might be challenged and, ultimately, refreshed by a new book from Trinity College Queensland’s Honorary Research Fellow, Charles Ringma.

In the Midst of Much-Doing: Cultivating a Missional Spirituality by Charles integrates the whole person and missional process: the head – theological formation, heart – spiritual restoration, and hand – missional action.

Executive Director of Melbourne’s Ethos Centre for Christianity and Society, Gordon Preece, says Charles brings to the page an astute theological mind, a heart for the lost, vast missional experience, and a quest for a sustainable missional spirituality.

“His personal quest for a more sustainable, grace-based Spirit and hope-inspired imagination, has come to fruition in this magnum opus,” he said.

He added that this tour de force work is penned from Charles’ ‘hard-earned’ sense of realism about individual sin and structural evil, and a balanced passion for evangelism and social transformation, contemplation and action, and mysticism and prophesy.

Charles is a familiar sight at Trinity as a member of the Tuesday writing group known as the Holy Scribblers. The Holy Scribblers meets in the Trinity Library and is devoted to writing theological works.

In the Midst of Much-Doing: Cultivating a Missional Spirituality is published by Langham Global and is available now.
