Summary
On the face of things, the spirituality of Australia's Aboriginal people is hard to reconcile with a spirituality of Christian theology, with its human centrism apt to a Son of God in Man, made flesh in Jesus. Nevertheless, Christopher Sexton, by drawing on his deep Catholic beliefs and intense dialogues with Aboriginal elders, finds surprisingly ample common ground. The creation stories of each lay emphasis on humanity?s stewardship for the earth and its mystical riches. Here is a book by a Christian lawyer who consulted deeply with our First Peoples. He found more in common between our distinct spiritualities than might be expected. Proving once again that listening deeply to each other will often yield common ground. The Hon. Michael Kirby AC CMG, Justice of the High Court of Australia (1996-2009)
