HEALING THE DIVIDE BOOK REVIEWS
In Healing The Divide, Amos Smith’s fresh perspective preserves the integrity of Christian mysticism’s epicenter from contamination from both The Christian hard right and the sometimes rudderless new age.
This is a foundational work written in a style that will be respected by scholars–yet easily accessible to ordinary Christians and would be seekers. The Jesus Paradox revealed in Healing The Divide is needed for the foundational reform and reformulation of the Christian message… This book is ground breaking! It reveals the primary image that was made to order to teach Christians non dual consciousness, but an image that we failed to form in our hearts and minds. We never overcame the divide in the Christ, so we did not know how to overcome the divide in ourselves. Amos Smith will show you the path of dynamic union that will move you far beyond mere philosophical belief.
Read Healing The Divide, and eat the mystery. It’s a check-up call to your identity and mission.
There are so many suggestions in publication re. a direction for Postmodern Christianity, most of them contradicting one another. All feel like a stab in the dark. Amos Smith convincingly argues that there IS a way forward for Postmodern faith and that way is rooted in Christian Mysticism—in the theology of The Jesus Paradox. The Jesus Paradox that Smith celebrates in his book is Christian Mysticism’s theological core and the way forward for Postmodern Christianity. I am glad that Amos Smith’s five roots of Christian Mysticism include New Monasticism and Nonviolence. Smith’s organization, RCMR, is a Postmodern synthesis of the most primary threads of Christian Mysticism through the ages.
I have practiced Centering Prayer for six years. I never found a root theological basis for my Centering Prayer practice until I encountered The Jesus Paradox taught by Amos Smith in Healing The Divide. Amos Smith’s organization, RCMR, has given me other central points of emphasis, such as New Monasticism and Nonviolence, which have helped me to integrate my Centering Prayer practice and understand it within a broader holistic framework. I now understand my calling and life choices within the context of New Monasticism. And I now understand my Nonviolence activism within the context of my Centering Prayer practice.
