Rediscovering God's Grand Story

In a Fragmented World of Pieces and Parts
  • By James M. Roseman
Product Description
In the passage to modernity we in the West have lost the ability to see things whole. We've closed our minds to all things transcendent and default to unbelief, and can't make sense of the persistent echoes of the voice of God that reverberate in our souls. In Rediscovering God's Grand Story, James Roseman picks up the strands of science, philosophy, history, the arts, and theology, and reweaves the tapestry to see a coherent story that makes the best sense of the world and provides real meaning and significance to our lives--God's Grand Myth. We see that the signals of transcendence that confound our culture of doubt are a universal language and vocabulary of the heart echoing the voice of God; and in the very Judeo-Christian story we so readily jettison is found the Author enabling us to see the world whole again. This essay tells why the story and promise of Christianity is so hard to hear today but won't go away. Could it be that, as T. S. Eliot wrote in the mid-twentieth century, ""at the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time""? ""Drawing on an amazing range of poets, philosophers, and writers Roseman helps the reader recover the sight and sound to see and hear the world as suffused with the glory of God. A remarkable book by a remarkable writer who has poured his life into this book."" --Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor Emeritus of Divinity and Law, Duke University ""Roseman's book is a masterpiece. He is excessively humble. He may be in business but he puts 'scholars who write for other scholars' to shame, myself included. Being this good, I would hate to see him as a professional scholar. Roseman writes well as a fresh interpreter for a popular audience, which is most of us. At once, this book is the best in art, story, philosophy, apologetics, and theology."" -David Naugle, Distinguished University Professor, Dallas Baptist University ""Roseman's book should take its place among the best of contemporary apologetics. Particularly helpful is his discussion of the modern (and postmodern) cultural 'backcloth' and why it makes the persistent 'echos' of God's reality so difficult to hear in our present world. I recommend this book highly."" --Robert Prevost, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Wingate University Inside Cover: ""Rediscovering God's Grand Story embodies the most powerful, and convincing form of discourse for conveying life-shaping ideas: the testimony. James Roseman is a rare modern example of a once central figure in intellectual history--the amateur scholar. Amateur in the sense of lover and scholar in the sense of one who lives comfortably and discerningly among books and ideas. If you, too, love the same and are looking for help in understanding how the world's understanding of itself got to where it is today--and why God has been and always will be central to that understanding--this book will be a boon companion."" --Daniel Taylor, Author of Death Comes for the Deconstructionist and Do We Not Bleed? James M. Roseman is an elder at Highland Park Presbyterian Church in Dallas, a lay theologian and philosopher, and a fellow of the Lewis Tolkien Society in Dallas. He formally studied religion, philosophy, and psychology in college and graduate school, but his career has been in business. He was a banker and for over thirty years worked in management and IT consulting with and for global companies. He is now an independent management consultant.
