This autumn the group will be studying a new book by Rowan Williams called “Being Human: Bodies, Minds, Persons”. It is beautifully written, straightforward and inspiring.
The book is published by SPCK and costs £9.99 before discounts. It is also available in electronic form for £7.99. The author writes:
“This book is… about the sort of questions in our culture that make us wonder what ‘real’ humanity is like and whether our most central ideas about what is human are under threat in this environment. These chapters… examine some sources of contemporary confusion, and outline some of the characteristics that we might look for in human lives when they are in touch with or in alignment with the grace and joy of what is ultimately true – with God and with the will of God, as Christians would say.”
The chapters cover topics such as: consciousness, personal identity, the relationship of mind and body, the place of dependency and religious faith, silence, openness and worship.
All are welcome and there is no charge.
