The core tenets of Christianity point towards the deep truth about ourselves, the truth that sets us free. In In a Landscape Redrawn, Bishop Donal Murray examines the place of faith in a world that increasingly views religious belief as antiquated and ‘doomed to extinction’.
Rather than becoming despondent about the future of our faith, Bishop Murray encourages us to reassess our deeply personal relationship with God and to take consolation in the Good News of Christ. By first exploring what it means to be human, and then considering how Christianity illuminates our humanity, this book highlights how a profound respect for Gospel values can improve all facets of life both in the personal and the public spheres.
