Mastering Theology provides an introduction to the main themes in Christian theology. It is aimed at undergraduates and those training for the ministry at theological colleges of all denominations throughout the English speaking world. Assuming no previous knowledge, this book takes a simplified look at basic issues in the Christian faith. It introduces the Hebrew scriptures and the New Testament and surveys the development of Christianity from its infancy right through to major themes in ethics and modern theology.
`My theme is the dance: the dance of life; the dance of the cosmos, of the natural world and the tiniest particles of matter; the dance of music and paint and words; the dance of those cruel times which feels like dancing in the dark; the dance of relationships, of forgiveness, friendship and love; the dance of faith; and finally, that hidden dance that some call heaven.' Few writers have explored the borderland between faith and contemporary living more eloquently and engagingly in recent years than Michael Mayne. In Learning to Dance he creates a magical weave of poetry, science and spirituality, touching on the longings, doubts and hopes of all of us. 'An enchanted and enchanting book. Michael Mayne has brought us through a dance of treasures of nature and a fascinating store of literature, from the mystery of the galaxies to the intricacies of the snowflake.' From the Foreword by Dame Cecily Saunders
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.
