Author(s): Peter Rollins
"'This book brings together Christian mysticism, postmodern philosophy, and the practices and liturgies of an alternative worship community trying to make sense of Christianity in a postmodern environment. The results are stunning - original, provocative, and creative.' Jonny Baker 'In this calm, quiet, well-reasoned book, Peter Rollins bursts the silence and grinds the 'posts' into the nothing they have become. Here in pregnant bud is the rose, the emerging new configuration, of a Christianity that is neither Roman nor Protestant, neither Eastern nor monastic; but rather is the re-formation of all of them. Here, in pregnant bud, is third millennium Christendom.' Phyllis Tickle"
PETER ROLLINS has a 1st class honours degree in scholastic philosophy, a Masters (with distinction) in political theory and social criticism, and a PhD for his thesis, 'His colour is our blood: A phenomenology of the prodigal father', all from Queens University Belfast, where he currently lectures in the philosophy of religion and ethics. He is the founder and current director of Ikon, an acclaimed post-secular project, actively exploring philosophy, spirituality and reconciliation, and a regular speaker at conferences, community groups and on BBC radio. He is currently working on a second book entitled, Being Evangelized, which is developing out of the course he teaches to YWAM (Youth with a Mission, an international, inter-denominational Christian movement).
