C.J. Scott writes all about ‘Sacred Places’
Book follows author’s expository journey through “place” from Garden of Eden to New Jerusalem
LONDON – It was while sitting in a place called Succat Hallel, a 24-hour prayer center in the ancient city of Jerusalem, in February 2015 that C.J. Scott felt the Lord leading his heart to write “Sacred Places: The Biblical Theology of Place, Exploring Its Central Importance in God’s Creation and Mission” (published by WestBow Press). This happened as he looked out of the panoramic windows in the prayer room, which overlook Jerusalem. Scott considered why this place of all places was so hotly contested, fought over and yet so loved and revered by most of the world’s population. He explores the answers to this and related questions throughout the book.
The book looks at the biblical theology of place, exploring its central importance in God’s creation and mission. It takes readers on an expository journey through place, from the Garden of Eden to the New Jerusalem, discovering the pattern of placement, displacement and replacement in life and faith.
“Believers in Jesus want to live in a way that pleases God in this world and this book will help them do that,” Scott says. “It is a very necessary corrective so as followers of Jesus we do not foster an escapist, slightly Gnostic mentality regarding this earth. It will appeal to those who want their faith rooted and grounded in the actual history of creation, the Bible and the human experience.”
Through the publication of “Sacred Places,” Scott hopes readers will become aware of the importance of place in God’s word and their lives here and now. He also hopes that they would become place makers, in the image of God, living their lives on mission.
