About the Book

Our ability to live relationally while exercising free will has traditionally been a challenging conundrum. Philosophers and theorists have also recognised and yet struggled with what appear to be two selves: one self free to be open and expansive while the other trapping people into spiraling self-centred and destructive behaviour. Genesis 1-3 can be read as an explanation of the interlinked themes: God’s type of government, the basis for free will, core themes in human identity, and the arrival and nature of the centred self. These concepts are traceable throughout the Bible and connect with our every day lives.


About the Author

Glenda Jackson’s interest in exploring the concept of the centred self began while working on a doctoral thesis in education. Early in her study program she was challenged to articulate her world view—one she recognised needed to span the philosophies and theories encountered in her discipline and research while also connecting with her Christian heritage. This book is the product of her journey to articulate a connected world view and the resulting unexpected discovery of the centred self.
