Product description
Frances Young explores the ways in which the earliest theologians and preachers read the Bible, and seeks to recover a sense of the importance of the spiritual meaning of the text, as much as the literal or historic meaning. She attempts to bridge a gap between the work of biblical scholars and what is practised and believed by faithful church-goers, by drawing on the wisdom of the church Fathers and exploring their relationship with scripture. Brokenness and Blessing brings together Frances Young's years of work as a scholar in the field of Biblical Studies, and as a preacher, as well as her personal experiences of caring for a son with profound learning disabilities and her journey with him. What emerges is a spirituality which offers both a realistic view of the human condition as well as 'the wonderful gift of grace which brings hope of transformation'.
