A beautiful and thought provoking book
on 17 June 2014
It is easy to see why Barbara Brown Taylor was such a powerful preacher in her day. She writes beautifully and with real clarity. In this book, she turns traditional dichotomies which say light = good and dark = bad! and turns the, on their head. Intriguingly she shows how God often shows up in the dark, and examines Christian history and writers in the light of this.
I warmly recommend this book - both for those who find traditional Church answers too easy, and live with their own darkness, but also for anyone who likes to think outside the box and be challenged to look differently.
