At the heart of the Christian Faith is the Body, Jesus the Word made flesh. Jesus in the Body which is the Church, Jesus alive and active in the world of every day. Exploring this embodiment of God in the Trinity inevitably involves studies in history, culture, and theology. The essays collected in this volume engage with issues of literature and the arts, painting and drama; they focus on gender issues, human sexuality; historical studies bring to light women whose contributions have been forgotten or left unknown; there are Bible studies and essays on prayer and preaching. They express something of the meaning of life before God that has been reflected in the life and work of Ruth Gouldbourne whose ministry has recalled us to re-member and live in the Body.
