Fields of Vision:
Faith and Identity in Protestant Ireland
by Alwyn Thomson
In this book Alwyn Thomson encourages us to think about how we see our past and our future, our identity and our faith. The book looks at the role that Protestantism has played in shaping the identity of Britain and of Irish unionism in the past and suggests that it remains a crucial factor in shaping identity in the present.
The book also looks at the theology of God, land and nation that has shaped Britain and Ireland and suggests alternative ways of thinking about these fundamental issues.
By challenging and changing our field of vision the book aims to create a fuller understanding of the identity of Irish Protestantism and to shape a deeper understanding of the Christian vision of God, belonging and identity.
