1 Brother John of Taize I Am the Beginning and the End

Reflecting on the first four chapters of Genesis and the last section of the Book of Revelation, the author discerns in them something of the profound meaning behind the creation of the universe (cosmology) and our place in it (anthropology) in the light of faith in God (theology). Who of us, for example, has not wondered at one time or another about the beginning and the end of the world and human history? How can we reconcile the data of empirical science and the insights present in Sacred Scripture? In trying to make sense of the world and all that is in it, it should not suprise us that the Bible regards each and every aspect of creation as a reflection of the unfathomable Mystery that gives meaning and consistence to all that exists. These texts allow us to discover, at the heart of all that exists, an inexhaustible Wellspring of energy and a Focus of unity, offering fulfillment in a life shared by all. The present work is based on the Bible reflections given in Taize as part of the international young adult meeting that take place there.167 pp

2 Brother John of Taizé Reading the Ten Commandments Anew: Towards a Land of Freedom

The Ten Commandments transport most of us back to the religion of our childhood, to catechism class or Sunday school. They easily evoke blind obedience, sin and guilt, a moralistic or legalistic mindset. Their negative approach seems to be at the opposite extreme from the positive religion of love and responsibility which we identify with Jesus Christ. Unless, of course, we take the opposite tack and welcome a return to "that old-time religion" as a bulwark agains the tidal wave of relativism and cultural anarchy that seems about to engulf us. If we are guided by our spontaneous reactions, in short, we risk rejecting or accepting the Ten Commandments for reasons that have more to do with our own preconceptions than with its meaning in the context of the biblical message as a whole. This book, then, proposes to undertake a rereading of this well-known biblical text to show how the Ten Commandments represent simple boundaries that protect our freedom to act and grow as children of a loving God. They are road signs indicating the way to the One who is the Way to Life in all its fullness.140 pp.
