Product Description

Have we westerners internalised the tyranny of mundane reason to police our innermost self? Have we in our conceptualist fixity hunted down and imprisoned the deer of our own soul? Can we understand that despite our strongest efforts soul will not be contained, and that it must not be?

Jesus and the Dreaming  traces how an Australian Catholic priest’s encounter with Aboriginal people forced him to confront the challenges and possibilities that Aboriginal spirituality presents to western Christianity. Fr Fletcher argues that in addition to a more authentic dialogue, a sympathetic understanding of the Dreaming will deepen our own religious experience and help renew modern Christian theology.
