Known to the senses

£3.99

Product description

North Atlantic culture is spiritually depressed, with the consequence that our senses have become dulled - they no longer function as sentinels to the presence of God. Drawing heavily on Denys Turner's influential book The Darkness of God, Warner explores how recovery of the deliberate use or non-use of our five senses might enable us to grasp something of the astonishment about God that inspired people like Augustine and the author of The Cloud of Unknowing to write in terms of what we now describe as 'mystical'. Warner links the senses with the liturgical celebration of the Lord's passion in Holy Week. Participation in the passion through reference to our senses can be a means of preparing for Holy Week, reflecting on the nature of worship, assessing the evangelistic communication of the liturgy. Warner is concerned to examine the interaction of contemporary Christian experience with an older, Christian culture. The book is intended for intelligent men and women who are serious in their exploration of the Christian faith and who do not wish to be mystified by theological science. Each chapter has a resource for prompting further group discussion of its themes.

Excellent all round condition.
