Imagination and Faith,
Sandra Levy draws from fields of psychology, literature, anthropology, art history and philosophy to make her case: our imaginative power - with which we are hardwired - lies at the heart of our potential encounter with some transcendent Reality.
All of us, she argues, whether to a greater of lesser degree, posses a creative, imaginative faculty which not only allows us to organize and make sense of the world around us, but allows us to remember hope, and project an as yet unrealized world of meaning. Also, like the rest of our human intelligence, this aspect of our minds needs educating, shaping and nourishing across the entire span of our lives. Levy first focuses on the importance of imagination in our meeting with God or Transcendence, then turn to major categories of imaginative products - ritual, song, poetry, art and story - through which Transcendence can be met. She then shows readers how they can practice, exercise and strengthen this amazing capacity.
Imagination and Faith
offers enrichment both to those without a religious tradition as well as those in any faith community who wish to deepen their spiritual lives. It points the way to hope for those who hunger for glimpses of Transcendence in their everyday world.
