Everyday Glory: The Revelation of God in All of Reality

Gerald R Mcdermott

$24.99

Paperback

How do we know and speak about God and God's relation to the world? Does God reveal himself through his creation?

In Everyday Glory, widely respected theologian Gerald McDermott recaptures a Christian vision of reality that has been lost for most of the last century: that all the world is full of divine signs that are openings into God's glory. Bringing together insights from some of the tradition's greatest thinkers--Jonathan Edwards, John Henry Newman, and Karl Barth--McDermott resurrects a robust theology of creation for Protestants. He argues that contemporary Christianity must chart a course between "natural" and "revealed" varieties of theological reasoning and shows how and where meaning can be found outside the church and special revelation in various realms of creation, including nature, science, law, history, animals, sex, and sports.
