Using the fairground image of a Hall of Mirrors, which distorts our normal appearance, Sydney Evans invites us to walk through a metaphorical Hall of Seven Mirrors to attain a clearer vision of the truth. These mirrors are seven paradoxes of the Christian life enumerated by St Paul in the Second Letter to the Corinthians, such as that we ‘are taken for … people having nothing though we have everything.’ The challenges presented by these paradoxes can shape a lifetime of ministry. This was the last of many memorable addresses given by Sydney Evans to theological students at King’s College, London.
