Item description for Inquiring After God: Classic and Contemporary Readings (Blackwell Readings in Modern Theology) by Ellen Charry...
Instead of introducing students to Christian theology through its doctrines, this text introduces it through discussion of church practices and the experience of everyday Christian life. By taking a practical approach it encourages students to see that the goal of inquiring after God should be spiritual growth as well as intellectual understanding, enabling them to integrate their faith with their thinking. The classic and contemporary texts brought together here introduce students to Christian life and thought across the centuries, opening up a dialogue between past and present. These discussions will acquaint readers with Christian claims about God, Jesus Christ, scripture, human nature, sin and salvation in everyday life as well as in communal ecclesial practice. The points of entry examined are study, science, work, affliction, repentance and forgiveness, prayer, love of neighbour, scripture, meditation, preaching, the Christian sacrament of the altar, Christian art, and reflective discernment.
