David Ford on Christian Wisdom

David F. Ford, Christian Wisdom: Desiring God and Learning in Love, Cambridge Studies in Christian Doctrine (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2007),  xiv + 412pp., ISBN 9780521698382, £15.99.

An accessible and highly suggestive work, thinking about theology in terms of ‘wisdom’ – taking its cue from Scripture and Jesus, drawing on tradition, in the context of worship, in order to shape wisdom for daily living and loving God for God’s own sake. This is a significant showcase of Christian theology being carried out in concert with Scripture and in conversation with the church, the university, the public square, and other faith communities.
