With 85 million members in more than 165 countries, the Anglican Communion represents a wide variety of opinions on mission, theology, and how to live and act as God's people. Witnessing Together focuses on preaching the gospel in different contexts around the world, highlighting practices that are transforming communities of faith.

"Each context is profoundly unique; opening a window on each of these enables the church in each place to share something of God with the church everywhere else. Unless we come together and share like this, our vision of God is small, impoverished," offers Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury. Stories of witnessing and sharing the love of God in Christ—of persevering in the hope of the resurrection—are the beating heart of the Church. "Listen carefully to its different voices and their richness," Archbishop Welby says. "Be open to its challenges, and be inspired to join in more fully with proclaiming the good news of Jesus."

Witnessing Together is the second of a three-book series to help Anglicans around the world prepare for the 2020 Lambeth Conference, when bishops from across the Anglican Communion will gather to discuss shared challenges and opportunities for mission and ministry.
