Why Being Yourself is a Bad Idea [9780281081790]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Building on the success of books offering key concepts in digestible form, Graham Tomlin writes for millennials and emerging adults who are seeking to make sense of life.

Each of the ten chapters focuses on a common human experience - WONDER, LOVE, SUFFERING, SACRIFICE, SOUL, FREEDOM, TOGETHERNESS, CONNECTION, CHANGE, JOY - revealing how reflection on that experience points towards the God revealed in Christ.

This is not a book of apologetics in the sense that it is arguing for the truth of Christianity; instead it shows how Christianity makes sense of our experience in a remarkably coherent way, opening up a much bigger and more exciting world than secular visions, or even other religious interpretations. It is written in a deliberately non-academic and popular style, though drawing on theological resources from the past.

AUTHOR: Graham Tomlin, formerly Dean (now President) of St Mellitus College and Principal of St Paul's Theological Centre, London, is Bishop of Kensington. Among his publications are Looking Beyond Brexit (SPCK, 2019), The Widening Circle (SPCK, 2014), Looking through the Cross: The Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book 2014 (Bloomsbury Continuum) and The Provocative Church (SPCK, fourth edition, 2014).
