Book Description University Press of America, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In spirited writing, Jill McNish goes to the heart of the matter, calling us to recognize evil exists and that we can get caught in its numinous power breaking through the fabric of humanity, both personally and collectively. Ardent, daring self-examination can help keep us mindful and protect us from dangerous denial. We can alsotake heart that we yearn for the good, look for it. The author s own priestly tendernesscomes through, that we want goodness, want to build up, not to destroy. Her amazement at the pursuit of goodness is wonderfully contagious. This book will make a difference. ---AnnBelford Ulanov, Ph.D., L.H.D., Christiane Brooks Johnson professor of psychiatry and religion, Union Theological Seminary, psychoanalysist, and author of The Unshuttered Heart, Opening to Aliveness and Deconess in the Self. Getting Real is a courageous, timely and insightful book. With theological and philosophical astuteness, psychological depth, and much personal vulnerability, McNish explores the nature and presence of sin and evil in our world . Getting Real is a must-read for anyone wondering why there is so much evil, hatred and violence in our world or [anyone] asking how . to love one s neighbor. ---Jaco Hamman, Ph.D., professor of pastorol care, Western Theclogical Seminary. outhor of Becominjg o Paster. Forming Self and Souls for Ministry What is sin? What is evil? How does reality fit in with the notion of a God who is `all good, all the time? These are questions that have bedeviled Christian theologians and pastoral counselors and caregivers from the earliest days of Christianity. In Getting Real about God, Suffering, Sin, and Evil, Jill L. McNish, a former attorney and seasoned pastor, rethinks and redefines the concepts of evil, sin, and suffering, discussing how these ideas enter into our everyday lives and how they impact our communities and nation. In her analysis, McNish employs the interpenetrating disciplines of theology, scripture, and modern-day depth psychology. Bookseller Inventory # BTE9780761854883
