Mystery and Play: God in Mysticism and Play

Canon Theologian Vernon White presents the last of three lectures exploring concepts of God in scripture, philosophy and drama

To hold together experiences of a personal God with concepts of an infinite and eternal God can lead to intellectual and imaginative paralysis. The puzzling and fragmented life we experience in late-modernity can do the same. Christian tradition has always acknowledged this as a necessary mystery. This final lecture in Westminster Abbey Institute's Doing God season explores how understanding of God, and our experience of God, must embrace such mystery.
