God and Man
A penetrating discussion between "The Atheist and the Archbishop"--Anthony Bloom's famous television discussion with Marghanita Laski--on the essence of Christian faith and life opens this book of five selections. Summarizing the Christian life in terms of worship, joy, and the challenge to grow into a full stature, Metropolitan Anthony calls for a worshipful attitude to life.
In other essays on "Doubt and the Christian Life," "Man and God," and "Holiness and Prayer," he seeks to reveal the true nature of man by looking to Christ, the true man and true God. Man, he states, becomes truly human only when he is united with God, infinitely, deeply, inseparably, so that the fullness of God abides in the flesh. Thus, in terms of holiness, all holiness is God's holiness in us; it is the expression of love--the response of the love given by God to His Church.
