But his adultery reveals surprising implications that complicate his marriage and ministry. Adam Christophers story offers a provocative statement about the nature of the divine in human sexuality.LORD OF THE SABBATH explores the little verse that many learned in Sunday School: God is love...a love which calls us to life as human beings created in the image of the Divine Lover. But what happens when this divine calling collides with the institutions of Church and society?
Adam Christophers adultery raises the age old question: What if love is more fundamental than morality? If God is love then whenever and wherever love erupts is God present? We may not be able to love with the perfection of angels but is not the fact that we can love at all a miracle?LORD OF THE SABBATH illuminates this miracle of love which continues to amaze and disturb us with it eruption. The author has taken some of the great love stories of the Bible -- not the least of which is Gods continuing love affair with the world -- and placed them in a contemporary setting.
These timeless stories represent the varied ways in which we experience love today. Love continues to occur all around us every day with its remarkable capacity to rise in and through the ashes of our human failings and become the vehicle for spiritual insight.LORD OF THE SABBATH offers not only a good read but food for thought.
