The Imaginary Doorway

ABM’s 2023 Lenten Study now ready to order!

“The Imaginary Doorway” is another fine piece of Australian missional theology, designed to get your group talking and your mind thinking.

Seven studies that, from Ash Wednesday to Holy Week, take us into the lives of seven of the people Jesus brought to wholeness. Seven stories that bring scripture alive and help us to understand that Jesus was dealing with real people, rather than generic characters. Hear anew the stories of Legion, the haemorrhaging woman, Lazarus and Martha, the woman accused of adultery, Zacchaeus, the paralysed man let down through the roof – and that post-resurrection BBQ breakfast on the beach.

Story-based studies that will touch your heart, build your faith, and encourage you on the missional journey. All genuine mission is incarnational and relationally based. As the studies suggest, “If our mission is all about purpose rather than relationship, we miss the point.”

Written by ABM Education Missioner, Stephen Daughtry, with art by Vanessa Daughtry, this will be another beautiful and challenging dive into God’s love.

The book is $12 a copy. Postage and handling is $11, no matter how many copies are ordered.

“Complimenting Vanessa’s evocative images, Canon Steve takes the gift of human imagination seriously, inviting us to experience scripture in a new way – with the authentic potential for new revelation.
