A GUIDE FOR POST-MODERN PILGRIMS
SEEKING AUTHENTIC SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATION
by Kevin Thew Forrester
“Kevin Thew Forrester’s Holding Beauty in My Soul’s Arms is a book for many, if not most, of us on the journey toward deeper spiritual formation. It offers a resting place, a reflective learning place where we may pause and savor at our own pace the riches of scripture, tradition, and reason as well as post-modern psychology, ethics, cultural studies, and systems theory. Familiar stories, presented in informative and provocative ways, take on greater vibrancy. Narratives of saints, ancient and modern, hold up reflections of human transformation. As we move into an unknown future, foundational theological questions about how we perceive ourselves and God are candidly and plainly opened up. It is in the doing of theology – reflecting upon our experience and that of wider communities – that we find nurture, insight and guidance toward Christian transformation.
