  • The reality of imperfection is something we all live with: but how do we live with it? In our dreams and fantasies we like to imagine perfect people, places or communities while in our cynical or despairing moments we see ourselves and our society as hopelessly flawed. The Christian gospel takes a third path: it is about imperfection and glory - it is about how God offers us realistic hope. In Jesus, God responds truthfully and generously to what we and our world are really like, so as to make of us something glorious.

    Drawing on the poetry of W. H. Auden, T. S. Eliot, Henry Vaughan and others Peter Fisher encourages us to follow Christ on this crooked journey to fulfilment. He shows how God brings glory out of imperfection both in human lives and in the community of faith.
