    Product Description

    "Christ of the Everyday" seeks to help us discover the true meaning of the way of Jesus. Two convictions permeate the text. The first is that to be converted is, in the end, not so much a matter of seeing different things as of seeing the same things differently; and that 'having the eyes of faith', in this sense, is a major component of being a person of faith. The second conviction is that most religious insight is something that happens, if it happens at all, in the midst of the ordinary experiences of life - including our experiences of solitude, suffering, friendship and joy. It is in and from such locations that Christians develop their perspective on Jesus.

    Christ of the Everyday

    Astley's theme is 'ordinary theology' - the implicit theology of everyday experiences, emotions and spiritual journeys. He emphasises a personal, bottom-up approach ('MY faith') and ends with a striking reference to the way in which his mother's ordinariness defines how Christ has to be for him. En route Astley makes bold use of quotations from Cupitt in particular, and like Cupitt does not eschew an anti-dogmatic approach that can feel surprisingly dogmatic, and a democratisation that does not always escape elitism. Read this to be stimulated, to debate and sometimes disagree.
