Product description

From the Author

The book is divided into seven major sections. Each will look at place from a slightly different perspective, but all will be informed by the overarching Christian worldview and metanarrative of God's creation, the fall of man, and the redemption of God's creation as revealed in the Bible. The sections are as follows:
 
  1. Philosophy: exploring the concept of place itself and its philosophical implications within the human experience.
     
  2. Theology: exploring place as a subject of theology with a particular focus on the definition of a sacred place.
     
  3. Scripture: exploring the Biblical Theology of Place as a major theme throughout Scripture.
     
  4. Narrative: this section will seek to harmonize the Theology of Place alongside the other overarching themes of the Bible like God as King.
     
  5. History: two routes of exploration are embarked on here. The first is the history of the land of Israel and the Jewish people. The second is the history of the Church. Both are reviewed through the lens of place.
     
  6. Application: exploring the various ways that the biblical theme and understanding of place can impact our lives and help us to be good place makers and dwellers in God's creation.
     
  7. Study: this is a supplementary section containing appendixes, suggested resources for further study, and a bibliography.
