Written by way of one of many world's most suitable non secular gurus, A Christian religion for this day offers either Christians and sceptics with a much-needed reaction to modernity's problem to God.Most humans settle for that our global is regulated through the legislation of average technological know-how, yet how may still Christian believers reconcile this with religion, incarnation and a loving and clever Creator?W. Montgomery Watt returns to the Biblical tales and assets on the roots of recent religion and to theological difficulties corresponding to Jesus' divinity and humanity. He indicates how the fantastic will be understood from a rational point of view and the really transcendental uncommon from allegory and symbolism.Sympathetic to the Gospel, but applicable to the trendy brain, this can be a well timed and delicate exposition of God's manifestation and intervention on the planet and of his reasons with us and for us.

Sample text

Christians believe that they learn something of the love of God from the mission and teaching of Jesus and above all from the climax of that mission; and some Christians would say that this was taught to them by God the Holy Spirit, although they did not hear any words. Thus knowledge of God can come to people in many different ways, but all of these are to be ascribed to God’s own activity. The knowledge of God, of course, does not come all at once, but is learnt gradually over centuries in a believing community which tries to live according to what it has already learnt about God.

Even a flood covering the much lower hills of Palestine would have been impossible. The story was presumably developed from conditions in Iraq. In that country there are vast stretches of low-lying flat land, and floods 42 GOD IN THE OLD TESTAMENT occur which cover large areas, even if the water is not more than a few metres deep. The biblical account exaggerates greatly the extent of the flood, but the story should be accepted as a pictorial presentation of important truths. In the Psalms and elsewhere God is thought of as interfering with natural processes in order to punish people for sinful conduct.

I may do something for what I think is a particular reason, and then later on realize that there was also another and more important reason of which I was not aware at the time. There may also be occasions when people act from motives of which they are completely unconscious and remain unconscious, and it is only other people who are aware of these underlying 28 GOD IN HUMAN LIFE motives. Although this is in a sense a limitation of human freedom, we still tend to say that unconsciously motivated people are acting freely; they are still making decisions, and these are having an effect on the world around them.
