Item description for The Education of Desire: Towards a Theology of the Senses (John Albert Hall Lecture Series) by T. J. Gorringe & Timothy Gorringe...

Overview
T.J. Gorringe proposes a theology of the senses. Corringe argues that the senses are what allow us to explore the world we are given. God chooses this form of reality and endows us with senses to celebrate and explore the mystery and magic of God's own creation. Gorringe demonstrates that, in small ways, each of our lives is the excersise of creativity in which God delights, and we are expected to use our gifts. Our senses are part of the radical imaginative gifting of God. We respond in gratitude by using them, Gorringe says, and in doing so, the Spirit prays, knows, and celebrates through us.

Publishers Description
How do the ways we see and hear, the ways we touch and taste, affect and inform our understanding of God's handiwork in the world? What significance do the senses have for our theological understanding? Timothy J. Gorringe proposes a theology of the senses, at the heart of which is the perception that the possibilities of the material world lie within the immaterial God. The material is not foreign to God, but a form of God's self-expression. Gorringe argues that the senses are what allow us to explore the world we are given, and further, that God chooses this form of reality and endows us with senses to celebrate and explore the mystery and magic of God's own creation. Gorringe demonstrates that in small ways, each of our lives is the exercise of creativity in which God delights, and we are expected to use our gifts. Senses are part of that radical imaginative gifting of God. We respond in gratitude by using them, Gorringe says. And in doing so, the Spirit prays, knows, and celebrates through us. Timothy J. Gorringe is St. Luke's Foundation Professor of Theological Studies at the University of Exeter.
