Led into Mystery
Full Product Description
In doing so, we discern the fragmentary mystery of being human alone and in relationship within the constraints of our time and space. We are rudely encountered by the perplexing mysteries of evil and death, but embraced by the mysteries of goodness and beauty, hope and love. We draw on memory and imagination to develop a language that enables us to explore mystery through the genre of myth, parable, poetry, the novel, music and art, we participate in the mysteries of faith that communicate grace, forgiveness, and freedom which enable us to be more fully human in the life of the world in the struggles for justice and peace.
Led into Mystery by John De Gruchy was published by SCM Press in May 2013. The ISBN for Led into Mystery is 9780334047360.

Led into MysteryMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
In a way it could not fail to be so for this is the profound and heartfelt personal record of the knowledge of pain, death and loss as experienced by De Grunchy, one of the top theologians and an expert on Bonhoeffer, as the reality of death truly impacted him in the tragic death of his son. This book is the story of the family dealing with this but also a most profound reflection and theological journey into the realities of death, grief and resurrection, that opens the door deeper than any mere theological discourse ever could, and yet does lead into the theology of life and death more than many other books could. This is a book I heartily recommend, both for those interested in theology and for those struggling through grief at an intellectual and emotional level.
