The Mercy of God's Humility

Edward Norman

The Mercy of God's Humility

Edward Norman

$29.99

Paperback
On many Saturdays in the year Edward Norman writes a column in the Daily Telegraph entitled Meditation. With pellucid clarity, Norman expounds central truths of the Christian religion in a way that is both traditional but entirely radical. It is, after all, the truth that sets us free. Here is a new collection of Norman's Meditation columns, a sequel to Continuum's highly successful book Out of the Depths. In this new book however Norman has written a brilliant new introduction, worthy of a Crockford's preface' in which he castigates reductionists and woolly minded liberals. The truths of Christianity are eternal verities. Orthodoxy is the highest form of radicalism. Norman has an entirely loyal following and it is substantial. But as the Christian Churches tear themselves apart on issues such as gay clergy and single sex marriages, Norman's message will be increasingly understood and appreciated.

- Publisher 224 Pages

- Publisher For well over a decade Edward Norman's Meditation column in Saturday's Daily Telegraph has attracted a large following among readers, and a second collection of the articles -- following the earlier success of Out of the Depths -- is here published in their original form. The Meditations are each self-contained arguments in support of a traditionalist understanding of Christianity, intended to help readers in their faith, and to maintain respect for the teachings of the Church. In that, they are plainly hostile to liberal interpretations of the Christian religion, and especially intend to deny modern reductionist attempts widely made in the church of today as well as outside it, to represent the mission of Christ as compatible with Humanist ethics. In his rigorous Introduction to the collection, the author surveys modern versions of religious belief with critical disdain. Book jacket.
