Divine Embrace

Christina Rees

$13.99

Paperback
Spirituality writer, Christina Rees, takes a personal look at the love of ^God in Christian belief. She considers aspects of Creation, the nature of ^the Trinity, and God's revealing of himself to people. She also explores ^the person of Jesus and the meaning and message of his life, death and ^resurrection.^Many Western Christians, she says, have a problem with the concept of ^unconditional love. Christina Rees looks at the reasons for this. She also ^takes an honest view of difficulties in belief - suffering, doubt and ^alienation.^Christian faith is about a response to a loving God. Writing out of her ^own experience, Christina Rees focuses on the nature of that response, ^which is ultimately beyond the realm of reasoned arguments, and offers a ^way of discovering hope, joy and love in one's own life.

- Publisher "Christina Rees takes an honest view of difficulties in believing in God - suffering, doubt, alienation and loneliness - and shows how Christ meets our need of a sense of personal identity, our desire for meaningful relationships and our search for fulfilment. Wherever we are on our spiritual journey, the message of God's compelling love is a message that will change our lives."--BOOK JACKET. Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
