Books Info:

Holiness,Speech and Silence free pdf The late Cornelius Ernst once said that Aquinas' 'Five Ways' were 'an attempt to show how we may go on speaking of God in the ordinary world'. Nicholas Lash shows how the main contours of the Christian doctrine of God may be mapped onto principal features of our culture and its predicaments. After an introductory chapter on 'the question of God today', Nicholas Lash considers - in chapters entitled 'globalisation and holiness', 'cacophony and conversation' and 'attending to silence' - three dimensions of our contemporary predicament: globalisation, a crisis of language, and the pain and darkness of the world, in relation to the doctrine of God as Spirit, Word, and Father.
