God and Us; Partners in Creation


CATEGORIZED IN


We fear for our future as a human race. The whole world is crying out for a new vision, a new way of ordering our world. It is scarcely recognised that we have, in fact, already been given that vision. It has been preached for centuries but its appropriateness for our times is not appreciated. It was given to us by a man from a small village in Palestine who lived in an occupied country and gave hope to an oppressed peasantry. To be empowered by that vision today it is imperative to focus anew on the person and message of Jesus of Nazareth. Can this vision be applied to our fast-evolving world, in our chaotic multi-cultural society with total global communication and the universal fear of terrorism which forms the backdrop of our lives? It can, because we human beings possess the unique quality of being creative. We have it within our power to change the world.

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

I enjoyed reading this book immensely. Adrian encourages us to be vigilant about reading the ‘signs of the times’ and offers plenty of food for thought, so we can begin to perceive a pattern of consciousness unfolding. Adrian’s ideas will be controversial to the orthodox Christian, but for the thinking Christian they will be welcome. This book will help to hasten that quantum leap which requires a change of mind from all of us. ~ Elizabeth Medler, New Vision Magazine

The central theme of this book is Jesus' vision of "the kingdom of God" as a manifestation of God's plan for humanity from the beginning. With amazing skill we are drawn into these pages of lucid, elegant, clear writing and refreshingly positive thinking....I found it impossible to sumarise the contents of this unique book. There is so much of interest, of visinoary thinking. Each chapter stands on its own, one wants to read on and also go back. I couldn't put the book down and then had to read it again. ~ , CANA

Smith's ideas are well presented and coherent. There is an appeal to those increasingly aware of planetary change and other holistic issues. There are interesting, creative musings on Jesus and the way forward for the Christian Church. ~ , Open House

A rare, possibly unique, attempt to integrate a fresh understanding of christian theology with a contemporary understanding of spirituality. ~ , Living Spirituality News

Both an appetite whetter and a fountain from which to drink deeply. We are challenged to ask very deep questions of ourselves, whihc demand deep reflection. An inspiring vision of a creative Christian future is put before us. ~ , Renew

Extremely readable, it offers a different way of loking at modern progressive Christian theories about the gospels and the life of Jesus, and has led to lively discussions in my house, as I'm sure it will do in the houses of other readers. ~ , PCN

Well written, in easy to read short sections. I liked his encouragement to live in the "now" rather than forever living in the past or looking for something else in the future. ~ , Catholic Women's Network

Enlivening and stimulating, the author presents a new approach to Jesus and the Kingdom he spoke of, in the context of the evolution of our Universe. He reveals its meaning for us of the 21st century. ~ Hans Schrenk, Lecturer in Holy Scripture and Biblical Languages, Middlesex University

This book is a real appetite-whetter in its great scope and clarity. It succinctly gathers together the process and development of Science, Religion and Spirituality. Most importantly, it identifies the deep shifts in perspective that are taking place as we move towards globalisation. A truly inspirational vision for now and the future. ~ Mary Jo Radcliffe, Chair of The Guild of Pastoral Psychology and founder of Coping with Change
