THE CHURCH LIBRARY HAS FOR YOU – “The Wild Gospel : Bringing Truth to Life” by Alison Morgan. This is “a splendid, stimulating, refreshing and beautifully written book”, ( quoted from the back cover.) The subtitle reveals the author’s aim of confronting the assumptions of secular and religious pluralism of today, with Jesus’ claim to be the Truth, the Way and the Life. We must learn to speak the language of the age without surrendering to the assumptions of the culture, regarding truth, freedom and happiness, just as Jesus did . He often broke with rigid rules and understandings of the Jewish establishment. “Truth is the reality of God Himself. That is why when He wished to make that reality accessible to human beings, He did it through a relationship: He sent His Son.” The Truth is living, acts and transforms. This is a CHRISTMAS book.
