Synopsis: Your life is made of time. But what does your lifetime mean? The Myths of Time is an original and stimulating examination of the theology of time and history drawing from art, literature, philosophy, theology and reflections on everyday life to show how we experience time. Connecting postmodernism with St Augustine, Blade Runner with Samuel Beckett and Shakespeare with Sigmund Freud, Rayment-Pickard argues that time is given meaning by a cluster of basic myths about human destiny. These myths stretch through primitive Christianity and operate powerfully in contemporary secular culture. The Myths of Time shows that far from being an abstract singular concept, we view time in a complex and multi-layered way which has strong implications for how we behave and approach our lives.

Review: `Theology today often oscillates between pretentiousness and banality, but Hugh Rayment-Pickard shows that one can both think out of a deep engagement with the intellectual tradition and still write a clear, gripping prose. The issues are religiously and philosophically central and the insights sharp and profound.' -- Dr George Pattison, Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity, University of Oxford `Time is a dauntingly difficult subject, yet I found it hard to put this book down. Clearly and compellingly written, it has profound lessons to teach about the different ways in which time is experienced. I strongly recommend it.' -- The Rt Revd Lord John Habgood
