The Time of the Spirit
15 x 23 cm
The purpose of this anthology is to show how time--the sequence of days, months, and seasons--can be taken up into Christ, and so be sanctified and transfigured. In so doing, it reveals some of the unfamiliar treasures to be found in the three great traditions of the Church: Roman Catholic, Orthodox and Anglican. Beginning in September with the creation of the world, the sequence of sacred time unfolds. In October the theme is the human person; later comes the cycle of Christ's incarnation, death and resurrection leading to Pentecost and the revelation of the Trinity; the book ends in August with the final glory of the age to come. Within each month some of the more important saints or their works are featured.
