Both Alike to Thee - Melvyn Matthews

SPCK, 2000, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good+.

First in this edition. In this ground-breaking and passionate book, Melvyn Matthews argues that believers today desperately need to retrieve a spiritual life of great depth in order to remain faithful in a world that contains much moral and social disintegration. Mysticism, often wrongly regarded as a private and personal experience limited to the few, is a way of returning us to the ‘starlit darkness’ in which we can really see and which removes us from the delusory qualities of contemporary existence. Both Alike to Thee affirms God, not just as an object of belief, but as the source of all being. It gives us a vision of the Church as the place where we can step out into his ‘deep and dazzling darkness’ with love and confidence.
