Food for thought
on 19 July 2012
A good, wide-ranging discussion of a very difficult subject. There's plenty here for group discussion, but you will have to prepare your own materials. I did and this worked pretty well.
The writing is very clear, the argument convincing and all surprisingly entertaining. I felt it was especially strong on how heaven is already here and how we can feel it now.
Even though I am happier with a more traditional understanding of heaven I was never upset by the author's different views. Perhaps this is at times frustratingly Anglican - trying to remain within the Catholic tradition while being exploratory and contemporary.
