The Shape of God's Affection

John Main Seminar (August 2010) Canterbury, UK

James Allison, in four stimulating sessions, reflects on the experience of God's presence, as encountered in Hebrew scripture and the New Testament.  His scholarship is matched by his sense of contemporary questions and his sense of humour.  In the fifth talk, Alison discusses issues related to being gay and Christian today.  A dialogue between James Allison and Laurence Freeman, moderated by Dennis McAuliffe, concludes this enriching and thought-provoking recording.  The sections make for easier personal selection and group listening.
