The Christ-Like God
This item is out of stock.
The central thesis of The Christ-like God is that Jesus is the reflection in human life of the being of God.
John Taylor begins by pointing out how few religious people-or non-religious people- ever stop and think about God, but tend to live with an unconscious stereotype. He discusses throughout the text how we acquire our idea of God, the nature of revelation experience, and the range of reflection on God both within and out-with the Christian tradition.
Bishop John Taylor was one of the twentieth century's leading Anglican missionary statesmen. An ecumenist, Africanist and theologian of internatioanl repute, he served as a General Secretary of the Church MIssionary Society at a crucial stage in its development and later became Bishop of Windsor.
"Bishop John V Taylor's treatment of the doctrine of God is quite magisterial...it gathers into one piece a whole rich theological and devotional treasury to sdmire, to savour and to enjoy." -- The Journal of Christian Doctrine and Philosophy
