The Ironic Christian's Companion : Finding the Marks of God's Grace in the World
The Ironic Christian's Companion Finding the Marks of God's Grace in the World Author:Patrick Henry A prominent religious scholar who isn't afraid to shake our assumptions and probe our imaginations, Patrick Henry has written a guide for the "ironic Christian"-one who strives to integrate truth with faith, to let an expanding knowledge of the world translate into an expanded understanding of God. Drawing on the works of a diverse group of writ... more »ers and thinkers, from C.S. Lewis and Julian of Norwich to Anne Sexton, Yogi Berra, and Dr. Seuss, he explores the ways in which we can maintain our belief in a God defined by mysteriousness. With humor, humility, and courage, he asks us to join him in this spiritual quest-and in the dizzying, thrilling leaps that faith invites.
"Witty...intelligent...[a] field guide for those who long to integrate their faith with their understanding of modern science, contemporary social theory, and everyday life."-Kathleen Norris
"This is a thinking Christian's book, a series of essays on questions with no easy answers...uncommonly candid and well-written."-Dallas Morning News
"As in The Canterbury Tales, the reader will meet an uncommon mix of seekers....The blend of the spiritual with the rational will delight many readers, some of whom may meet a God full of surprises."-Library Journal
"I'm happy to report that I've found the third in a series of recently published books that takes up the study of God and his grace and does it in a readable and inspiring fashion. (The other two are Amazing Grace by Kathleen Norris and Traveling Mercies by Anne Lamott.)"-Jon Hassler, The Minneapolis Pioneer Press« less
