Overview

The marginalisation of Christianity in Western societies is a growing crisis for contemporary believers. One positive response is to deepen our own faith journeys through adult life and faith formation that should always be a priority in evangelisation.

Opening Doors: A Seeker's Reflections on the Rooms of Christian Living takes seriously the invitation of the Lord for us to open the door to him, and with confidence consider how our faith may be enhanced and energised through the wisdoms of contemporary theology and spirituality. The book is written for those whom Charles Taylor describes as 'seekers' - Christians who are searching to reconcile their faith with emerging insights from modern science, cosmology and consciousness.

We are invited to open eleven doors and enter eleven rooms of Christian living. Each room offers a flavour of each of the topics in the Christian Story followed by focused questions for individual reflection and shared conversations in self-directed groups. The topics of the rooms include everyday spirituality, the universe story, humans and religion, the mystery of God, meeting Jesus, the church, ministry, women and faith communities, a Christian ethical way of life, Christian spiritualities and faith communities in a global world.
