A history and guide to the church.
Dr Kennedy argues that modern man, through rationality and secularism, is cut off from the truth, goodness and beauty which belong to God. The Church’s message, and the Church’s buildings, must reflect the transcendent and the sacramental, and help “modern man” to recover a sense of reverence, community and dependence on God.
Dr Davidson argues that the restriction of training to the academic sphere has equipped ministers for a teaching ministry but not so much for a pastoral or devotional one. His vision is of a residential college where academic training might be supplemented by community life and devotional discipline.
