|Kathryn Greene-McCreight. The Archbishop of Canterbury, foreword|
|Pages/Publication Date:||202 / 2015|
Examining the ways in which the Bible portrays God's presence as a light in the darkness, Episcopal priest and theologian Kathryn Greene-McCreight offers these close readings of scripture patterned on the seven days of creation and the seven monastic hours of prayer. She traces the concept of divine light through the lives of Adam, Job, Hagar, Jacob, Elijah, and Jesus, and her insightful, accessible chapters end with questions for further study. Impressed by the author's memoir Darkness Is My Only Companion—the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, commissioned this book as a reflective daily reading guide for the 2016 Lent season, and contributes the foreword.
