Experiences of dependence and of waiting are becoming increasingly frequent and widespread in contemporary life and yet we evade, repudiate or resent them.
Vanstone's book, a modern classic of the Anglican spiritual tradition, looks at our attitudes to illness, to being out of work, to not 'doing' anything.
He draws on the story of the passion in John's Gospel to transform our understanding of these experiences, by presenting Jesus as a figure who, in his waiting, discloses the deepest dimension of the glory of God.
