  4. The Role of Death in Life. A Multidisciplinary Examination of the Relationship between Life and Death

    The Role of Death in Life. A Multidisciplinary Examination of the Relationship between Life and Death

    $29.95

    A Multidisciplinary Examination of the Relationship between Life and Death The relation between life and death is a subject of perennial relevance for all human beings--and indeed, the whole world and the entire universe, in as much as, according to the saying of ancient Greek philosophy, all things that come into being pass away. "In this book, the mutual implication of death and life is demonstrated from an astronomical level, in the emergence of human life from the death of stars, to the molecular level where death enables the emergence of cellular life, through anthropological, philosophical, and theological insights, to the realm of medical care for the dying, where it is claimed that 'only theology can save medicine.' A profound and challenging book." --Andrew Louth, Professor Emeritus of Patristic and Byzantine Studies, Durham University, United Kingdom "How can Christians defend the place of natural death and the death consequent upon sin, while continuing to insist upon the undying character of true life as such and so the reality of resurrection? These penetrating essays by several of the leading theological thinkers of our times will powerfully help the reader to ponder these crucial matters of our contemporary mortality." --John Milbank, Research Professor and Director of the Centre of Theology and Philosophy, University of Nottingham "For once, it is not a polite exaggeration to say this is a 'unique' book. The breadth of disciplines represented and the originality of the analysis offered make it an exceptional contribution to current debates. Anyone who thinks the dialogue between theology and the natural sciences is, at best, an exchange of uncomprehending platitudes, will have to think again in the face of these expert, challenging essays, which show that an orthodox theology of our embodied condition can be culturally transformative." --Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge "A substantive, important, and provocative volume. The insights of the essays it encompasses will richly reward the reader." --H. Tristram Engelhardt Jr., Professor of Philosophy, Rice University, Professor Emeritus, Baylor College of Medicine Learn More

    The world we live in has been called a ‘vale of tears’, a ‘place of weeping’ – perhaps with good reason. Wherever you turn you see pain, sorrow, undeserved suffering, death, and sin. The ‘ruler of this world’ (Jn 12: 31), the ‘world ruler’ (Eph. 6:12) is the devil. He is constantly to be seen. God, who is named ‘He who is’, meaning the One from whom everything comes into being, is nowhere to be seen. ‘No one has seen God at any time’ (John 1:18). That is why his very existence is a matter of dispute. He has, however, ‘revealed himself’ (John 21:1), and he promises to manifest himself to whomsoever keeps his commandments and loves him: ‘I will manifest myself to him’ (John 14:21). This book records simple events and conversations, all the while grappling with difficult questions. We see the human struggle to discover the person of God when that is veiled by the logic of this world, our limited understanding, and the arrogant pretensions of human littleness. The book engages intensely with complex and difficult issues . . . but which leave us confused and at times scandalised. What it does not do is give any direct answers, or try to persuade the reader through logic or impressive arguments. Its aim is to convey the sense of the discreet yet persuasive presence of the true God precisely in situations where He is not visible: in pain, in disability, in the tragedies of life, in inexorable death, as this comes across in true events and is reflected in the lives of real people.

    Born to Hate, Reborn to Love is a story for our generation, a story that brings comfort, reassurance and hope to a world immersed in confusion, rejection and despair. Repelled and repulsed by those who ostensibly represented the Christian faith in his juvenescence, Klaus Kenneth naturally looked elsewhere for the solution to his lonely and tortured existence. In his sincere search for escape from rejection and abuse, Klaus found himself on an odyssey that took him around the world several times, lured him into a vortex of pleasure and power, and initiated him into the great philosophies and religious traditions of our times. Having tried it all, and reaching the very brink of the abyss of despair and the desire for nonexistence, Klaus encounters the One whom he had never thought to look for, the One that he had always discounted: the great I AM, the God of Love and healing, the God of regeneration and eternal life. Klaus Kenneth How many people do you know who have faced a firing squad or had conversations with Mother Teresa? Klaus Kenneth has experienced both in his most extraordinary life. Klaus is an Orthodox Christian and spiritual child of Elder Sophrony of Essex. He was born into extremely unfortunate circumstances at the end of World War II: his father abandoned his family not long after they settled in their new home, his mother rejected him, and he was abused, mentally and physically, by a priest who promised to "educate" him. As Klaus sought to escape the hell of being unloved, he began to look for a way out of his misery, which took him on a journey through the manifold pleasures and promises of "this world": rock music, sex, drugs, the Occult, Transcendental Meditation, the religious traditions of North and South America, Africa and the Middle East (including Israel), India and the Orient. His quest literally took him around the world several times over. He tried it all. But as Klaus himself relates in this remarkable story, the longest and hardest journey of all was the one that goes from head to heart. Not content with words alone, Klaus applied himself diligently to everything that he tried. In the process, he learned the techniques of the Occult, he was regarded as a guru in India, where he spent a number of years, and later believed that he would end his life as a Buddhist monk in Thailand. The list of his experiences, the places he visited, and the people he met is endless. And along the way, he was given profound spiritual experiences, which led him to the One that he had always discounted – Jesus Christ. Though entirely unaware of it at the time, Klaus' "return" to Christianity began in Calcutta, with Mother Teresa, his first mother. It was facilitated later by the famous Protestant pastor, Maurice Ray, the first father-figure in Klaus' life, from whom he had received exorcism. And it was brought to completion by Elder Sophrony of Essex, whose unconditional love and genuine friendship initiated Klaus into a world that he had never suspected even existed. Because of the sincerity of his desire, God revealed himself to Klaus, brought him out of the chaos of our syncretistic culture, and led him to the place where the realization of our true personhood in and through Jesus Christ may be accomplished – the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, the Orthdox Church. Published here for the first time in English, Born to Hate, Reborn to Love is already a best seller in several other languages. It has been published in Bulgarian, Croatian, French, German, Greek, Serbian, Romanian, Russian. Learn More
