Solid binding, pristine text, but front cover shows discoloration along spine.
An Eighth Day View:
Setting the Gospel Free is an exploration of Christian faith and practice from an experiential and contemplative point of view. The book integrates elements of Buddhist techniques of mindful awareness and contemplative prayer as a means of fully experiencing Christian faith in our daily lives.
Brian Taylor takes a fresh look at some of the key stumbling blocks for those seeking integrity in their faith: belief in Jesus, a personal God, relational prayer, parish life, and the authority of scripture. By viewing traditional symbols, concepts, and practices from an experiential and contemplative perspective, these stumbling blocks become what they were originally intended to be -- useful forms that can awaken us to that which is beyond all form: life in God.
