Spectres of God
Priest, poet, and broadcaster Rachel Mann believes the world is charged with a divine spark. She explains how in our encounters with what she terms "the spectres of God," one can become at peace with limitation, precariousness, lack of certainty, and one's fractures--and at the same time find in divine fragility the hope of the world. Drawing on her own experiences, in three short chapters (on the body, on love, and on time) Mann explores how God invites us, repeatedly, to live in a rich, three-dimensional mystery that subverts the depressing flat-earth of modern life.
