The Shape of Living
by David F Ford
Publisher:SCM imprint of Hymns Ancient & Modern Ltd
A new edition of this excellent and classic book that was originally written as an Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book 15 years ago, now with a new preface written by the author that catches us up with some changes since that time and a quick contextualisation for those new to the book.
The Shape of Living is a book that still works today because even though many things change the things this book talks about really don't, and we still find ourselves standing and staring in the face many of the deeply intense things that we encounter in it. Work, relationships, desires, leisure are all forces that we encounter and must deal with and always have. Using strong Biblical references and reflection, David Ford shows us that we can deal with these in a creative, energising and spiritual way that help us journey well through our modern lives.
