Item Description...
The nature of God is that he cannot be "bound" to one place or timebut he also took finite form, bounded to a redemptive act and time that forever changed the world. The understanding of the Triune God also brings together a certain "boundedness" that cannot be taken in any way to limit the bounds of the Creator.

In this treatment on the nature of the Lord, Adrienne Von Speyr's mystical erudition is implemented to great effect, allowing the reader to glimpse a view of God that many lack. The fruitfulness of these meditations is evident on every page, and brings the Christian view of divinity to a new and beautiful level of interpretative thought.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
the boundless enters boundedness  May 23, 2006
In this short but profound book, Adrienne von Speyr (1902-1967), a Swiss mystic, offers eleven meditations on the infinity of the triune God who entered our finitude to bring us into his boundlessness.

In one meditation, she uses the sea as an allegory for the boundlessness of God. The sea has a certain look of infinity in its vastness and a look of change in all its waves. Just as the sea has something `ever farther' about it, so too does God--though to an infinite degree. Yet, the sea, in all its sameness and being `ever farther', has raging depths, which reveals to us God's ever new, passionate love. Speyr writes, "In surveying the sea, a person who is accustomed to praying can recognize how much of himself God betrays through the sensory world, how loudly he calls and exhorts men, and how clearly he reveals his love of creation, which is as alive today as it was on the first day." (p. 13) For Speyr, all that is created should be experienced as communication from the living God.

If you are looking for what is so attractive about Christianity, read this book. You will see why Christians have the look of eternity in their faces. The eternal God has entered into one finite-bound man, Jesus Christ, in order to give us all a share in the triune God's eternity. In everything Jesus is and does, "he grants us glimpses into the boundlessness of heaven." (p. 24) The timeless enters time; the boundless enters boundedness.

In this book, there is fire; try to catch it.
