This is an important and original study of the ideas of self and Christian salvation. Using the pivotal image of the face, David F. Ford engages with three modern thinkers in order to rethink and reimagine the self. He goes on to examine the dimensions of salvation through the lenses of scripture, worship practices, Christ and the lives of contemporary saints. The result is a theology of self and salvation immersed in Christian faith, thought and practice, while also being deeply involved with modern life in a pluralist world.
