CATEGORIZED IN

Existentialism and Christian Zen is a book written for readers without an in depth background in philosophy, especially existentialism. Written in the style of an in-depth essay, the book is both an examination of the interface between Christian meditation and Zen Buddhism and a practical dialogue between Christian existentialism and the practice of Zen.

Father Bill McVey takes readers on a mindful existentialist tour of Christianity and Buddhism, respecting the uniqueness of each but finding the important ground they share. Readers receive the gift of insight as well as vital tools to help them through the inevitable anxiety in which life in the post-modern world marinates.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A William McVey
A William McVey What’s different? Christian Alternative is looking for a genuinely liberal and provocative approach to faith, ethics and institutional religion. We want to understand why, despite the Enlightenment and secularization, Christian writers and preachers often cling to pre-modern theological ideas. Why is talk of radical orthodoxy usually more orthodox than radical?

This leads into an interest in Public Theology – the interface between religious ideas and other disciplines such as science, politics, secular ethics, and the arts. Science and philosophy pose key questions, but we also want to explore theology through metaphor, poetry, visual art, and music.

Christian Alternative looks to provoke. Jonathan Swift wrote to Pope that ‘the chief end I propose to myself in all my labours is to vex the world rather than divert it.’ A bit of vexing is good for theology. We aim to wrestle with big religious and ethical questions without being tied to any dogma or church, to meet people where they are, and to be ready to jettison redundant imagery and esoteric ideas of heresy.
