How do we embrace and work out our call to be disciples in a broken world? In The Contemplative Struggle, Ian Cowley draws on his experience of living in his native South Africa during the apartheid era to challenge understandings of contemplative prayer and spirituality as essentially inward-looking. In doing so, he highlights the urgent need for Christians to be active in bringing transformation to a suffering world and paints a compelling picture of radical discipleship for today. 'Just as we are all meant to be contemplatives and to hear the voice of God in our lives, we are all meant to answer God's call to be his partners in transfiguring the world. This calling, this encounter with God, is always to send us into the midst of human suffering.' Archbishop Desmond Tutu
