This is an important and original study of the ideas of self and Christian salvation. Using the pivotal image of the face, David F. Ford engages with three modern thinkers in order to rethink and reimagine the self. He goes on to examine the dimensions of salvation through the lenses of scripture, worship practices, Christ and the lives of contemporary saints. The result is a theology of self and salvation immersed in Christian faith, thought and practice, while also being deeply involved with modern life in a pluralist world.An eagerly awaited book from the highly respected theologian, David FordOffers a constructive theology of salvation, which is relevant to life in the modern world as well as rooted in the Christian faith and traditionThe book goes to the heart of the Christian faith while staying in dialogue with leading contemporary thinkersContentsPrefacePart I.
