“Why Reason is Not Enough”


, , ,

Malcolm Guite has written a newly published book called, “Lifting The Veil: Imagination and the Kingdom of God.”

For those who don’t know, Malcolm Guite is a British poet, author, and an Anglican priest.

In the article linked above we get a delightful quote that offers us a peek into what it is all about, “I want to make the case for a recovery and reintegration of the imagination together with the reason as modes of knowing, and, further, I want to affirm that the healing of that split, the reconciliation of that division, is to be found in the incarnation, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. He comes not only to save us from our sins, but also to heal the tragic fracture in our ways of knowing.”

Oh, amen to that. A good chunk of what I blog on, such as “mythos and logos,” “down with objective truth,” and “the value of fairytales,” are really just lamentations and wailings about post modernism, about the enlightenment, about the compartmentalism and subsequent divisions within our modern world and how that all impacts our faith.

So, just knowing similar things are on the minds of others, that whole books are being written, that people are paying attention, brings me a certain degree of comfort and causes a great sigh of relief.
