God the Worker

Journeys Into the Mind, Heart and Imagination of God
  • By Robert, Jr. Banks
Product Description
Here is an invitation to embark on a journey of discovery that marshals our imagination and emotions, our intellect and will. God the Worker seeks to answer the ultimate questions: - What is God really like? - Can we know God intimately? - Where do we fit into the overall scheme of things? In his quest for answers, Robert Banks opens up the world of the Bible and everyday life as he explores dynamic images of God at work: as composer and performer, as metalworker and potter, as garmentmaker and dresser, as gardener and orchardist, as farmer and winemaker, as shepherd and pastoralist, as tentmaker and camper, as builder and architect. He shows how, through the language and idea of work, the divine hand is revealed. This book offers us the opportunity to encounter God in a way that is mind-expanding, life-changing, work-transforming--taking us to the very edges of human understanding. The author sees the Bible as a guidebook and source of insight that is completely fresh, but paradoxically as old as the book itself. Robert Banks is a professor at the Centre for the History of Christian Thought and Experience at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. Prior to 1999, he served as the executive director of the DePree Leadership Center and as Homer L. Goddard Professor of the Ministry of the Laity at Fuller Theological Seminary. His books include ""Paul's Idea of Community"" and ""Redeeming the Routines.""
