God and Enchantment of Place : Reclaiming Human Experience, Paperback / softback Book

God and Enchantment of Place : Reclaiming Human Experience Paperback / softback


David Brown argues for the importance of experience of God as mediated through place in all its variety.

He explores the various ways in which such experiences once formed an essential element in making religion integral to human life, and argues for their reinstatement at the centre of theological discussions about the existence of God.

In effect, the discussion continues the theme of Brown's two much-praised earlier volumes, Tradition and Imagination andDiscipleship and Imagination, in its advocacy of the need for Christian theology to take much more seriously its relationship with the various wider cultures in which it has been set.

In its challenge to conventional philosophy of religion, the book will be of interest to theologians and philosophers, and alsoto historians of art and culture generally.
