Christianity Rediscovered: An Epistle from the Masai

11 Apr

I finished my lenten book on saturday.

This book really is as good as everyone makes out. There were many fabulous bits, but here are a selection of my highlights:

“Salvation is not a magic formula produced by a secret mixture of sacraments and church membership. It is the result of love of God and grace and holiness and goodness. It is all one process, continuous, unbroken.”

“I say to you Masai: you have not known man, you have never seen a man. Creation is not yet finished. What you see is creation groaning and moaning even until now, yearning to be finished and completed, to be the body of God.”

This is a must read for any person on a journey of re-thinking Christianity outside of modernism and christendom.
