The Divine Magician
Full Product Description
His revealing book shows that a good magic trick always has three parts: the Pledge, the Turn, and the Prestige.
In The Divine Magician, each part comes into play as he describes the way God works in our world today and how this connection helps us understand the truly radical message of Christianity.
Rollins argues that the Christian event, reenacted in the Eucharist, is indeed a type of magic trick, one that is echoed in the great vanishing acts performed by magicians throughout the ages. In this trick, a divine object is presented to us (the Pledge), disappears (the Turn), and then returns (the Prestige).
But just as the returned object in a classic vanishing act is not really the same object - but another that looks the same - so this book argues that the return of God is not simply the return of what was initially presented, but rather something that was always there and yet unseen.
In an effort to unearth the power of Christianity, Rollins uses this framework to explain the mystery of faith that has been lost on the church.
In the same vein as Rob Bell's bestseller Love Wins, this book pushes the boundaries of theology, presenting a stirring vision at the forefront of re-imagined modern Christianity.
