Description
Christianity offers a message of freedom and radical change and yet produces people who seem enslaved by and burdened with guilt. Drawing on real-life case studies as well as illustrations from contemporary fiction, Wilfred McGreal looks at the traditions which have formed people and church teaching on original sin, morality and conscience. On a wider scale, the author goes on to look at corporate guilt and responsibility; guilt about ecological issues; and women and guilt. What answers are there? Does Christianity have a positive vision of human behaviour? In this book, the author re-values the healing sacraments as enabling people to unburden themselves and work through the shadowside - to work for an ethic that flows from a vision of community. Much of this book is based on a series which Wilfred McGreal made with Anthony Clare for BBC Radio 4.
