Sensing God Reading Scripture with All of Our Senses

Sensing God Reading Scripture with All of Our Senses

Author: Roger Ferlo Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/11/2001

Think of all the senses you use when you pick up a Bible. What do you see? What do you smell? What do you touch? Reading scripture attentively is more than a matter of sight. Most of us have been taught to think about God in visual terms, yet the very subject matter of scripture-our relationship with the fullness of God-makes irresistible demands upon all of our senses if we are to begin to understand anything about God. In these meditations on stories from the New Testament, Roger Ferlo shows us how to read the Bible in a full-bodied way, with all the senses attuned. For just as a printed recipe cannot substitute for a mouth-watering feast, so the Bible must be brought to life through the senses. Its stories must be seen, heard, touched, smelled, and tasted. Only then, Ferlo believes, can we truly begin to encounter in our lives the Word of God to us in scripture. Sensing God is one of our series of Cowley Cloister Books: smaller format, gift edition books designed for meditative and devotional reading.

Theological Reflections On the Trinity, Christology, and Monotheism

Theological Reflections On the Trinity, Christology, and Monotheism

Author: Michael J. Taylor Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/10/2001

Few Christians can talk about the Trinity clearly or intelligently. When we ask theologians to speak of the doctrine in plain terms, they are not always helpful either. The early ecumenical councils (Nicea and Chalcedon particularly) attempted to define aspects of the mystery with precision, but their philosophical language made it difficult for average believers to understand their pronouncements.
