9780802832184: The Luminous Dusk: Finding God in the Deep, Still Places

For millennia humans knew the stars as well as we know our own backyards. Yet today many if not most of us have lost vital connections with our natural world, and so have in many ways lost our sense of wonder. In the thoughtful, genre-bending nonfiction tradition of Wendell Berry and Walker Percy, Dale Allison explores the loss of wonder in Western society. Mining insights from sources as diverse as ancient creation myths and contemporary children's books, he highlights our ongoing disconnect from the cosmos, tracing its undeniable spiritual and philosophical impact. The Luminous Dusk is an elegant, lyrical call to seek the stillness of God in our clamorous world.

From the Publisher:

Richard Foster — author of Celebration of Discipline "Dale Allison’s voice is one that needs to be heard today. He is steeped in both biblical and classical literature and brings that vast reservoir to bear upon his insightful critique of contemporary society."

Vriginia Stem Owens — author of Looking for Jesus "The Luminous Dusk is one of those rare books that simultaneously illuminate and delight. Reading it, one feels the world expand and resolves hereafter to lead a more spacious, less trivial life."

Harold Fickett — author of The Living Christ "An exhilarating investigation of modern culture and the sources of spiritual experience. . . . The Luminous Dusk convicts us of how we put ourselves apart from the transcendent and urges us to reconsider. This book is a treasure."

Scot McKnight — author of Embracing Grace "Dale Allison asks if the stillness of God is not an invitation for us to listen. May we, with him, become more attentive as we seek wisdom."

About the Author:

Dale C. Allison Jr. is Richard J. Dearborn Professor of New Testament Studies at Princeton Theological Seminary.

Descripción Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company July 2006, 2006. Paper Back. Estado de conservación: New. When we consider Homo sapiens in his environment, there are certain constants and certain variables to be considered. The variables mostly have to do with his environment, and the modern world has confronted him with changes in the conditions of that environment so radical as to defy comparison with those of any other age. The constants (for those of us who are not materialists) are the realities of his kinship with the beasts and his ineradicable desire for transcendence, for participation in divine life. Unless we are Gnostics, we must admit the inevitability of the impact of environment on human nature, and therefore ponder our own remarkable age. The nine essays contained in this book provoke us to do just that. Allison, a biblical scholar with interests ranging from science and literature to popular culture, asks us to take note of uniquely modern conditions so pervasive as to be invisible: the separation of most of us from the natural world, the absence of silence, the availability of artificial light, the attention to celebrity rather than heroism or sanctity, the multiplication of distraction, the impoverishment of the imagination. In prose elegant yet precise, and the use of ancient and modern sources astonishing in breadth, we are unrelentingly called to pay attention, to wonder, and finally to choose between an existence of numb mediocrity or divine ascent. 176 pp. Nº de ref. de la librería 90614
