'Calling People of Goodwill'
A resource book from 'Together for the Common Good' and the Bible Society: a Body in Association with Churches Together in England.
The common good is a means to seek the welfare of all people. God calls all people of goodwill to join in his mission to bless the world. In a time of division and instability we are encouraged to build alliances of goodwill, and we hope and pray that this book blesses you as you respond to God’s call to work for the common good. This is a booklet for our times.
Contains six short passages from the Old and New Testaments looking at what the Bible can show us about the common good and prompting reflection, discussion, prayer and action.
Uses passages from the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV).
'This little book is a wonderful introduction … a reminder that we are called as the church to seek the Common Good of all in our communities, whether local, national or global.'
Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
'A great resource. "Calling People of Goodwill" is a real treasure! It can truly help us all to get to grips with faith in action today.'
Cardinal Vincent Nichols
'In a me-focused, high-consumer society, the Common Good could transform our lives if we were to live it out. This little book will help you do just that.'
'Callin People of Goodwill' is a six-session guide exploring a biblical perspective on the idea.
'We hope that this book will help people to re-explore the Bible in a way that will make Britain a better society,' says Fleur Dorrell, our Scripture Development Co-ordinator, who partnered with Together for the Common Good to create the resource.
