True religion is the discovery and fulfillment of the meaning of life through the acceptance of divine mystery. The God who created us is infinitely transcendent, yet by ineffable grace He makes Himself known to mortal human beings. We catch glimpses of God through His universal creation. We glean a partial knowledge of God through His universal laws. We hear the voice of God speaking through our consciences. And we feel His omnipotent existence through human expressions of love, mercy, compassion, and justice. And yet, in spite of these things, God is still holy mystery. He is not a riddle to be solved, but an Infinite reality to be worshipped and adored. And with humble hearts, human beings can experience the Lord of creation in mystical depth. For through the simple but sublime message of the Gospel, God has made it possible for finite human creatures to enter into His eternal embrace. By the power of the Cross, we can indeed know Him Who surpasses all knowing. [From the Introduction] MYSTERY and MEANING is a compilation of inspirational quotes, mystical prose, and philosophical polemics from the mind and heart of Gebre Menfes Kidus ("Servant of the Holy Spirit"). The author's words provide a unique and valuable perspective on many of the vital religious, social, and moral issues of our time. Gebre Menfes Kidus balances contemplative reflections with impassioned argument, leaving the reader challenged and inspired. Herein is edification and enlightenment for the philosopher, the theologian, the spiritual seeker, and the lay Christian. The author addresses a variety of topics, such as: + Orthodox Theology + Spiritual Warfare + Mysticism + Social Justice + Metaphysics + Christian Pacifism + Biblical Commentary + Human Rights + The Teachings of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church
