Love Unknown by Ruth Burrows OCD
The Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent book 2012
Ruth Burrows believes that many people, even regular churchgoers, miss the true meaning and joy of Christianity. God longs for us to know him as our saviour, so that he can bring us to share in his own Trinitarian life and love. In successive chapters Burrows traces how God reveals himself to us through our personal lives, particularly our experiences of weakness and failure; through history and the natural world; through the scriptures; and above all, through his beloved Son Jesus. Encountering the living and true God revealed in Jesus Christ challenges us to face our own truth, and so sets us free to receive the boundless love, the joy, fulfilment, and holiness for which we were made. Then we shall ‘sing a song we have never sung before’.
