By Geoffrey Parrinder
This can be one in every of 3 books of non secular quotations I preserve convenient for getting ready my sermons and different spiritual writings. the opposite are The Quotable Spirit (Lorie & Mascetti) and Treasury of non secular Quotations (Tomlinson).
Parrinder is Emeritus Professor of the Comparative learn of Religions on the college of London. His ebook is the main scholarly and philosophical of the 3. a number of the quotations appear to be selected to demonstrate theological positions instead of for any energy to motivate. The e-book additionally has a better emphasis on British resources than the opposite two.
The 3000 fees are grouped lower than 177 themes. in contrast to different assets which order subject matters alphabetically, Parrinder divides the 177 subject matters into 18 thematic chapters. a topic index is incorporated for the extra alphabetically prone. although, variations of an analogous time period (e.g. agnostic, agnosticism, and agnostics) are listed individually. An writer index can also be included.
Parrinder's Christian orientation indicates either within the number of subject matters and within the collection of quotations. approximately each subject starts off with a quote from the Hebrew Bible (Old testomony) and a quote from the recent testomony (usually utilizing the King James translation for both). a few of these choices look pressured, as though Parrinder feels he needs to contain Bible charges for every subject. All different quotations are put after the Bible quotes.
The resources most often brought up (other than scriptures or founders of worldwide religions) are: Aristotle, Augustine of Hippo, Francis Bacon, William Blake, ebook of universal Prayer, Albert Camus, John Donne, Meister Eckhart, Mircea Eliade, R. W. Emerson, E. E. Evans-Pritchard, Samuel Johnson, C. G. Jung, John Milton, Blaise Pascal, Plato, John Ruskin, William Shakespeare, Alfred Tennyson, Charlotte Vaudeville (on Kabir), and William Wordsworth.
