A book about basic Christian communities, first published in 1990. At that time, Ian Fraser had gained more than 30 years' experience of visiting and making personal contact with such communities around the world.
When Ralph Morton wrote The Twelve Together in the mid-1950s, it was in response to the need he perceived for an understanding of Jesus's life with his disciples in order to inform a more appropriate pattern of church life in his own day
Ian Fraser entered industry in 1942 as the first of what became a worker-priest/pastor movement. This book's underlying conviction is that just as ministry belongs to more than only the clergy, so does the task of theologising belong to all and not just to the professional theologian.
First published in 1951, this book had its origin in a discussion as to whether the prime determining factor in human social relations is economic, as claimed by the Marxist world, and acted on implicitly by most of the rest of the world. Ralph Morton therefore begins with a study of the teaching of the Bible on economic and social life.
