Synopsis

Martyn Warner offers an entirely new perspective on the spiritual journey leading to Easter and the Resurrection. Today's culture and pace of life can be exciting but overwhelming. Fast food, synthetic music and aromas, and the visual assault of demands for our attention can combine to make us stressed and weary. Our senses become dulled, and we forget how to use them as sentinels of the presence of God. "Known to the Senses" is about recovery and release: the recovery of a tradition of spirituality and discipleship that nurtures our senses in the discernment and worship of God. Drawing on films, literature, art and personal reminiscences, Warner seeks to explore the media that convey something of the mysterious and astonishing experience of God, in which we are released from obsession with ourselves. This book considers the interaction of Christian experience and tradition with contemporary culture. It offers material for use in Lent by individuals and groups who are seeking to explore and deepen faith in Jesus Christ and relate it to their life and society.
