With books such as 'Sources of the Self', and 'A Secular Age', Canadian Professor Charles Taylor has succeeded in provoking renewed debate and fresh insight into what many had come to regard as settled turf, from the nature of the human person to the continuing place of religion. Readers of John Main will appreciate his insightful little essay John Main and the Changing Religious Consciousness of Our Time. It is gathered together with some other wonderful little essays (including my favourite by Australian Sarah Bachelard who writes under the essay title: John Mains Contribution to Contemplative Theology: ‘In meditation we verify the truths of faith in our own experience’ ) in John Main: The Expanding Vision (Canterbury Press, 2009)
He has been in Australia as a Guest of the Australian Catholic University, to officially launch their 'Institute of Social Justice'.
