London (PRWEB) February 04, 2014
Can Sunday sermons be reconciled with the realities of life and humanity? In her new book, “Recognition” (published by AuthorHouse), Janet Killeen shares a collection of stories that acknowledge that struggle and explore Biblical events and characters from new perspectives, showing readers that these men and women of the Bible “feel as we feel, question as we question and (are) moved as we are moved”. With her stories, Killeen seeks to lead readers toward a faith that is authentic and relevant while drawing on the reader’s imagination and empathy.
Each story in this book describes an event or meeting from the Old or New Testament, but from a fresh point of view, creating significant moments of ‘Recognition’ and transforming encounters and conversations that enable the reader to identify their own questions, life experiences and struggles, and see them worked out in each specific Bible story. The central theme of the book is Incarnation and what it means to today’s Christians and to the people of the Bible.
“(The book describes) what it (Incarnation) must have meant to those people whose names we perhaps know, but whose inner struggles and social contexts are lost to us. They meet, or they seek to find, the God who expressed himself most fully in his humanity; in relationships and conversations, and through touch, shared meals, and expressed emotions,” Killeen says.
Insightful and immediate, “Recognition” is a must-read for the modern-day Christian and for anyone who is struggling with questions of faith and who is in search of a renewed sense of imminent reality in the Biblical narrative.
