His distinctive contribution to topics as diverse as theology and politics and mysticism and theology is characterized by an incisive iconoclasm and a fervent desire to get at the truth of things. Time and again the author offers striking and original observations, which put new perspectives on familiar subjects.aWhile Faith Seeking originated as talks given to a wide variety of audiences, it uniformly attempts to reconcile the apparently conflicting u but as the author sees it, complementary u outlooks of head and heart. Its fundamental theme is that the mind cm love just as the heart needs to understand and that a proper use of intellect is a way of being truly alive.

  • Darkness Of God

    $47.99

    For the medieval mystical tradition, the Christian soul meets God in a “cloud of unknowing,” a divine darkness of ignorance. This meeting with God is beyond all knowing and beyond all experiencing. Mysticisms of the modern period, on the contrary, place “mystical experience” at the center, and contemporary readers are inclined to misunderstand the medieval tradition in “experientialist” terms. Denys Turner argues that the distinctiveness and contemporary relevance of medieval mysticism lies precisely in its rejection of “mystical experience,” and locates the mystical firmly within the grasp of the ordinary and the everyday. The argument covers some central authorities in the period from Augustine to John of the Cross.
