Product Description

Our faith is full of paradox- God became man, death and new life, good and evil, to name a few. How are we to live in these apparent contradictions? In "The Promise of Paradox" author Parker J. Palmer takes a closer look at the contradictions at the core of Christian spirituality. Rather than avoiding, he encourages the reader to embrace these paradoxes and allow them to open our hearts and minds to new ways of seeing.

Editorial Reviews

"Palmer argues that the promise of paradox rests on a single overriding principle: accepting paradox with humility. That is the mortar that binds the very diverse pieces of this book together. And it is that very idea that makes the book worth reading." – Congregations, 2009
