Product Description

Review

From The Church Times - July 2011 Facing the Darkness and Finding the Light by David Winter is a book of 'reflections for troubled times from the book of Revelation'. There are really two journeys here: into the dreams, symbols, and strange images of the Revelation of St John, and into the suffering and struggles of life and the world. It is Winter's assertion that one brings light to the darkness of the other. Probably one of the best-known Christian writers in the UK, he takes the reader through the visions and mystery of Revelation with clarity and assurance. He has written a brief but valuable guide, which includes thoughtful questions for group discussion. Winter's observations are insightful, and he does indeed shed 'light in the darkness' as he seeks to address the big questions to be faced personally and globally: our fears and our suffering. His under - standing, experience, and pastoral heart are evident. The problem, however, is that not all answers are found in Revelation, and some of the answers raise other big questions: for example, 'ultimately God is in control.' Facing the Darkness and Finding the Light is a kind and thoughtful companion to the last book of the Bible; it opens the reader's eyes not just to the visions and images in Revelation, but also to the fears, pain, and questions of life. Canon John Kiddle is Officer for Mission and Development in the diocese of St Albans. From The Good Bookstall - March 2011 A paper guide that beats with hope and help is offered here. Evil, suffering and pain are all engaged with in the contours of humanity and in Revelation written at the conclusion of Scriptures as a light for our path. The darkness and light metaphor against the backdrop of confusion and ambiguity is used in this attractively packaged twelve chapter feast. There are chewy questions offered for personal or group discussion. This is a step-by-step journey through the apocalyptic and mysterious visions of Revelation, which face the awfulness of much of earthly life head-on. 'While it is not always an easy journey, it is a deeply rewarding one', for amid the maelstrom of passion, and despite the blood and horses and beasts from the pit, the light of divine purpose, hope and love shines. 'We shall face the darkness over these pages, but we shall also find the light.' Reviewed by Johnny Douglas

This is step-by-step journey through the apocalyptic and mysterious visions of Revelation, which face the awfulness of much of earthly life head-on. While it is not always an easy journey, it is a deeply rewarding one, for amid the maelstrom of passion, and despite the blood and horses and beasts from the pit, the light of divine purpose, hope and love shines. We shall face the darkness over these pages, but we shall also find the light. Solid but not spectacular!
