Item Description...
Overview
"It is evident after exploring these heroes' lives and writings that GOD REMAINS A MYSTERY-a reality beyond images, descriptions, dogmas and creeds."-from the conclusion How does a person imagine God? How does that image change as the person matures spiritually and undergoes a significant religious experience? What influences-political, social, gender, faith tradition-shape and change a person's view of God? In this compelling and inspiring book, Brennan Hill uses stories and historical and theological sources to tell us how eight modern religious heroes see God. Hill's religious heroes are diverse: an Indian Hindu, a German Jewish woman who converted to Christianity, an African American Baptist minister, an American woman who came to religion only after years of atheism, a Salvadoran archbishop, two Jesuit priests-on French, one American-and an Albanian nun. Hill writes: ...for all of these people God was often close at hand, deeply felt in the events of their lives, glimpsed in the people they met, pursuing them in their minds and hearts. God came to them with many intriguing faces: as a God of truth, of the homeless, of the mountain. God came in the cosmos , as one beckoning to prophecy, and as a fellow sufferer sharing the cross. Divinity appeared as the power of peace and in the poverty of the abandoned. Each one of us might now ask: What face has my God shown to me?

Publishers Description
"It is evident after exploring these heroes' lives and writings that God remains a Mystery--a reality beyond images, descriptions, dogmas and creeds."--From the "Epilogue"
How does a person imagine God? How does that image change as the person matures spiritually and undergoes a significant religious experience? What influences--political, social, gender, faith tradition--shape and change a person's view of God?
In this compelling and inspiring book of biographical theology, Brennan Hill uses stories and historical and theological sources to tell us how eight modern religious heroes see God. Hill's religious heroes are diverse: a Hindu (Mahatma Gandhi), a Jewess who converted to Christianity (Edith Stein), a black Baptist minister (Martin Luther King, Jr.), a Catholic laywoman (Dorothy Day), a Salvadoran archbishop (Archbishop Oscar Romero), two Jesuit priests (Pierre Tielhard de Chardin and Daniel Berrigan) and a nun (Mother Teresa of Calcutta).
Hill writes: "Many of my religious heroes lived out their faith in an outstanding manner. For all of these religious heroes God was often close at hand, deeply felt in the events of their lives, glimpsed in the people they met, pursuing them in their minds and hearts. God, as it were, came with many intriguing faces: as a God of truth, of the homeless and of the mountain. God came in the cosmos, as one beckoning to prophecy and as a fellow sufferer sharing the cross. Divinity appeared as the power of peace and in the poverty of the abandoned. Each one of us might now ask: What face has my God shown to me?"
