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.

Publisher's Description

First published in 1980—and reissued here with a feisty new introductory essay—The Promise of Paradox launched Parker J. Palmer’s career as an author and his ongoing exploration of the contradictions that vex and enrich our lives. In this probing and heartfelt book, the distinguished writer, teacher, and activist examines some of the challenging questions at the core of Christian spirituality. How do we live with the apparent opposition between good and evil, scarcity and abundance, individuality and community, death and new life? We can hold them as paradoxes, not “either/ors,” allowing them to open our minds and hearts to new ways of seeing and being.

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
