Living The Magnificat
Full Product Description
From their very different perspectives, Linda Hogan, Margaret Magdalen and Mongezi Guma go on to address the issue of justice and what it means to be human in the light of Marys story. Mark Chapman takes up the problem of Christian politics, and how easy it is for Christians to become overly-fixated on church affairs at the expense of the suffering world. Similarly, Michael Doe sees the contemporary Anglican struggles about issues in human sexuality as a distraction from far more pressing matters, challenging the Anglican Communion to learn from the many examples of new life across the globe. In a lively piece, Joe Cassidy challenges Christians to think again about the universality of Christian ethics. Finally, Stephen Cottrell offers a vision of a world turned upside down and presents a call for a renewed sense of mission to combat the inherent destructiveness of so much recent political thinking.

Living the MagnificatTeresa De Bertodano, via The Good Book Stall
In his Foreword Jeffrey John reminds us that in 1980’s Guatemala the Magnificat was banned as an incitement to rebellion and a danger to the state! But what does Mary’s Magnificat mean to ‘comfortable’ Christians of today? Mark Chapman has invited distinguished Anglicans and Roman Catholics to consider Mary’s challenging insistence upon gospel realities. I particularly appreciated Chapman’s own thought provoking chapter on the dangers of inward looking Christianity and Sister Margaret Magdalen’s Southern Africa based reflections. Other contributors include the Bishop of Reading, Linda Hogan of the Irish School of Ecumenics, Mongezi Zuma of Sophiatown and Michael Doe of the USPG.
