Item Description...
Contemporary spirituality tends to follow an inward journey, unconcerned with churches and rituals, even while it is drawn towards pilgrimages to remote places or sacred cities. David Martin writes, "People are rediscovering the journey to a special place as a part of their interior journey through time to discover themselves." These journeys generate personal stories about beginnings, travels and travails, prospects and arrivals: sacred history. Christianity began by emphasising a journey through an inner landscape to a spiritual city, or New Jerusalem, which was the universal home of all nations. Nevertheless real holy cities at the center of sacred territories always return, even in Protestantism where they return as elect nations with a mission. Both the invisible world and tangible locations are permanent presences: sacred geography. These meditations, sermons and buried mosaics of quotation explore the tensions between the inner journey of the heart-in-pilgrimage--often in the voluntary group of the like-minded--and the physical journey--often also in company--to sacred locations, sometimes remote and away from it all, sometimes to holy cities at the centre of spiritual and political power. There is a link between the voluntary company of the like-minded and universal visions of fraternity and peace, on the one hand, and, on the other, holy cities, particular agglomerations of power and violence, and the social order necessary to the advance of commerce and civilisation. At the heart of these reflections is the encounter between the non-violent, fraternal City of God pursued by the heart-in-pilgrimage, and the more (or less) necessary and defensible regimes of the City of Man. That encounter came to a climax when Jesus entered the holy city on Palm Sunday. The denouement became the sacred history of Christianity that is explored here in Sacred History and Sacred Geography.

Sermons for People Bored with Most Sermons  Dec 10, 2009
David Martin, sociologist of religion extraordinaire (and now professor emeritus from the London School of Economics), writes now as David Martin, former Methodist lay preacher and currently Anglican priest. These sermons are deeply literary, each sentence meant to be pondered, as Martin reflects on a wide range of contemporary and classic issues both within the church and (as one would expect from an LSE sociologist) well beyond the churchyard. These are sermons to be chewed slowly, perhaps on a Sunday afternoon to make up for whatever skim milk one was served that morning. I know it sounds snobbish, but this is the meat some are looking for amidst a landscape of dairy dispensers.
