`Hope is about learning to dream - provided one remembers the dream comes not so much out of one's own unconscious, but out of God's. Hope is first learning God's dream, and then living it.'
This striking guide to thoughtful Christian living explores the everyday experience of Christian hope and wisdom. In thirty six short and engaging reflections, Sam Wells explores what influences and shapes how we live, love, think, read Scripture, feel and dream.
Helping us grapple with cultural forces and contemporary questions, Learning to Dream Again sets out to shape a theological imagination that is grounded in the reality of being human in a suffering world and yet open to transformation by the life and joy of God.
SAM WELLS is Vicar of St Martin in the Fields, London, and is the author and editor of many acclaimed books including What Anglicans Believe, God's Companions (shortlisted for the Michael Ramsey Prize) and Power and Passion, the 2007 Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book. Previously he was Dean of Chapel and Research Professor of Christian Ethics at Duke University, North Carolina, and has worked closely with Stanley Hauerwas.
