S 76 The Creation of Adam: Seven Guided Reflections from Genesis

This booklet offers seven prayer-reflections on the creation of Adam using a photograph of a sculpture from Chartres Cathedral. Rather than picturing Adam as a finished creation, the sculptor presents a human being half-emerged into life and still incomplete - just like us. We too are unfinished creations - we are human becomers.

These reflections contemplate God's creating work from fresh angles and suggest unexpected ways of studying and praying with the original creation story and with our own. They are suitable for use in groups or for personal prayer. Each meditation begins with an insight from the sculpture into the biblical text and then invites personal and group response with suggestions for discussion, use of creative arts and prayer.
