Product Description

Graced Life: The Writings of John Hughes forwards a collection of writings from the late John Hughes, Dean of Jesus College, who died in 2014 in a car crash aged 35. A rising star in the Church of England, Hughes was not only a beloved teacher with an effective pastoral ministry and colourful character, but also a respected scholar and philosophical theologian with a breadth of interests.

Among this breadth of interests was one underlying and unifying project—to reveal the integral relation of grace and nature. He was thus able to hold together a romantic Christian Socialism, a love of culture and a committed pastoral ministry.

For John, there was no pure nature or neutral secular realm, but all things could be seen in the light of faith as graced and caught up in the redeeming love of God. John integrated a rich catholic spirituality and theological understanding with an incisive critique of contemporary philosophical schools.

Editorial Reviews

'The jarringly premature loss of John Hughes as a theologian as well as a man, is incalculable. Yet in this collection of essays, as well as in his first book, he has nonetheless left us with a crucial legacy. One could define this as a renewal of the Anglican social tradition, but in a manner that renders it both more theologically informed and more central to Anglican theology as a whole. Such a renewal naturally involves a return to the Catholic highroad of true Anglican sensibility, alert both to the depths of subtler British tradition and to Continental currents, especially those of French Thomism and ressourcement, and of Russian sophiology. The same sensibility was in John's writing strongly attuned to literature, to pictorial art, to labour and to human exchanges of love, but in a rigorous fashion that connected them all to metaphysical and doctrinal vision. It is now up to the rest of us to sustain his work, and in his own joyfully and amicably militant spirit.'

'In all the work of John Hughes, sacramental socialism was reborn and reshaped with a greater intensity for our troubled times. He was David Jones’s ‘cult man’ who ‘stands alone in Pellam’s land’, where he guarded the signa. But in this volume, he has bequeathed us his ‘house treasures’, ‘the tokens, the matrices, the institutes, the ancilia, the fertile ashes – the palladic foreshadowings … the venerated trinkets’. May his readers guard them well and attend to their vital implications.'
