The Woven Universe: Selected Writings of Rev Maori Marsden (out of print)
Rev. Marsden (1924-1993) was a tohunga, scholar, writer, healer, minister and philosopher of the latter part of the twentieth century.
A member of the Tai Tokerau peoples of the north, Maori was both an ordained Anglican minister and a graduate of the whare whananga, the traditional tribal centre of higher and esoteric learning.
He was uniquely placed to explore and explain the frontier between pre-Christian theology, understandings of divinity and the Maori worldview, and his Christian faith and vocation. His conclusions and perspectives on these matters are widely influential and speak meaningfully to his people whose spiritual welfare he was dedicated to.
