Overview


 In What's Going on Inside, Martin Warner sets out to give an intellectual and spiritual account of the adventure of faith. With originality and courage, Warner has based this book on the vesting prayers used by the celebrant at the Eucharist. However, a scriptural metaphor best describes the book's contents. In Genesis, God promises to make Abraham's descendants as many as the stars in the night sky; this book recovers a vision of the stars for understanding the inheritance of that promise today. What goes on in our minds when we begin to think about prayer, worship and God? How do we identify what we mean by spirit? Warner explores the theme of what is shared and what is eternal and looks at the implications of the binding by God of God himself to humanity. Finally, friendship with God is seen as a foundation for understanding human dignity. In all this, the universal aspect of vesting prayers is applied - for we are all clothed in ressurrection bodies.
