The gnostic view of salvation "consists of being able to flee this material world, usually by means of a secret knowledge"; for the docetists, "our suffering and death, as well as all the injustice and evil that exist in this world are not important. Our bodies are prisons holding our souls in the material world and clouding our visions of spiritual realities" (141). They both offer "salvation out of this world, without having to confront its present evil" (143). Too often this is the preaching and teaching religionists hear: forget about this life and think about the one to come. The Lordship of Jesus, however, consists in his being for-otherness. God is, for Gonzalez, being-for-otherness. That is his glory and that of Jesus (153).
The concluding chapter 11 of Manana concerns itself with Christian spirituality, which Gonzalez believes, cannot be spoken of apart from the Holy Spirit. In Acts 2:17, we are told that the Spirit is poured out on all flesh." Man is not above nature but a part of it. As part of created reality it is the nature of man to sin; the "Spirit is the power that intervenes to make things become what they are not" (160).Read more ›
A note to the publishers: If you're going to offer a Kindle version and charge full price for it, please do a proper edit job. The Kindle version is full of run-on words and misprints like Mariana for Mañana. But for your sloppy and unprofessional scanning to text job I would have given it 5 stars.
