Paperback portrait 140mm x 210mm
Symbols and Spirituality speaks to anyone who wants to know how the sacred text of the Gospel of John, so treasured within the Christian tradition, has spoken to the minds and hearts of Christians for two thousand years. It is an invitation to a better understanding of ourselves and of our relationships as individuals and communities, with God and with one another.
In this book, Michael T Winstanley has achieved a remarkable marriage between a serious and accurate reading of the text of the Gospel itself, a close familiarity with contemporary scholarship, and the eminently human, yet symbolic, religious and spiritual world in which we all live.
