Sacred Places: The Biblical Theology of Place, Exploring Its Central Importance in God’s Creation and Mission

by C. J. Scott

$7.49 $9.99

Overview

Sacred Places is a book that looks at the biblical theology of place, exploring its central importance in God's creation and mission. It takes its readers on an expository journey through place, from the Garden of Eden to the New Jerusalem, discovering the pattern of placement, displacement, and replacement in life and faith.

If you are a Christian seeking to understand the Bible's teaching on place and how that affects both our faith and lives in the world, then this book is for you. It will open your eyes to the central importance of place and give you direction on how you can apply a healthy understanding of place to your life as a disciple of Jesus Christ, making you a better place maker and dweller.

The thesis of this book is that place is far more important than we ever could have imagined. C. J. Scott is specifically proposing that (1) places are sacred because of God's decree and personal presence, (2) place plays a major role in God's creative and redemptive purposes, and (3) God's people are called to be both place makers and dwellers.
