Following Christ is a collection of sermons and spiritual addresses given by The Revd Dr Robert Beaken in urban and rural parishes, following the Church’s liturgical year including Advent, Christmas, Candlemas, Lent, Holy Week, Good Friday and Easter, Ascension Day, Trinity Sunday and Christ the King. Interwoven with this are sermons examining the life and ministry of Jesus Christ, which reflect the author's love of Holy Scripture and experiences as a pilgrim in the Holy Land. The book looks at the sacraments including baptism, the Eucharist, confession, marriage and ordination.

This is a book to be dipped into, perhaps during Lent, on a quiet day or during a retreat. The sermons and addresses were delivered to a wide range of people, ranging from members of an Anglican religious community, to parents bringing their babies to be baptized.

What comes through in all of [Beaken’s sermons] is a parish priest talking to his people, whom he knows well and with whom he has a relaxed relationship.

The Revd Canon Dr Philip Ursell

Reminiscent of reading the sermons of Mgr Knox.
