Contents1 The Practice of Homefulness2 A Myriad of ""Truth and Reconciliation"" Commissions3 Bragging about the Right Stuff4 A Culture of Life and the Politics of Death5 Elisha as the Original Pentecost Guy6 The Stunning Outcome of a One-Person Search Committee7 The Non-negotiable Price of Sanity8 The Family as World-MakerThere is ""a convergence of themes in this collection. The urgency of practice, the cruelty of homelessness and the demand of generating homefulness, and the performance of forgiveness that makes homefulness possible all converge. These themes, moreover, are unmistakably contemporary in a society that is mesmerized by market ideology that wants religion without public practice, that sees no harm in the homelessness of the 'unproductive,' and that eschews the forgiveness of debt that make neighborly life possible. I am glad if these essays bear testimony to the crisis we continue face and to the work to which we are continually called in faith."" --from the PrefaceWalter Brueggemann is William Marcellus McPheeters Professor of Old Testament Emeritus at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, Georgia. He is the past President of the Society of Biblical Literature (1990) and the author of numerous books, including these from Cascade Books: Embracing the Transformation, Remember You Are Dust, Truth-telling as Subversive Obedience, David and His Theologian, Praying the Psalms (2nd ed.), and A Pathway of Interpretation.
