Rev Dr Max Champion

Published in the April 2012 edition of ACCatalyst

Until recently considered to be a relic of a bygone age, and an escape from a robust secular faith, the resurgence of Gnostic spirituality within and beyond the churches is remarkable. Bookshops testify to this explosion of interest. Churches create ‘sacred spaces’ in which to meditate. The simultaneous collapse of Christianity and modernity – which had competed with, and complemented, each other in shaping Western patterns of reality – has led to interest in older spiritual resources found deep within the self.
