Description - Between Heaven and Charing Cross by Martin Warner
Martin Warner sets out to give an intelligent and spiritual account of the adventure of faith. This will cover new ground but also dig in the familiar routine of daily life for the possibility of faith in God. With some originality and courage, Warner has based his book on the vesting prayers used by the celebrant at the Eucharist. But a scriptural metaphor best describes the book's contents. In Genesis, God promises to make Abraham's descendants as many as the stars in the night sky. This book recovers a vision of the stars for understanding the inheritance of that promise today. What goes on in our minds when we begin to think about prayer, worship and God ourselves? How do we label and identify what we mean by spirit? Jesus Christ, who is God and man, invites us to look at the implications of the binding by God of God himself to humanity. Here is a new paradigm of discipleship. Finally Friendship with God is seen as a foundation for understanding human dignity. Throughout all this the universal aspect of the vesting prayers is re-applied a?? for finally we are clothed in resurrection bodies.
