Using refreshingly unconventional prose, rising theologian Wendy Farley has written a theological account of the human condition that delves into the deepest dimensions of the soul. Considering human life from the perspective of the wounding and healing of desire, with desire being that within us which longs for connection, home, and beauty, Farley presents a passionate, moving account of the human condition that draws strongly upon the Christian meditative and mystical spiritual traditions. In doing so, Farley shifts the traditional images of sin and redemption into images of healing and power. The result is a theological memoir that reaches into the human depths and draws forth a response of the soul--in courage, compassion, and delight.
Dal retro di copertina: "This is a work of great beauty and compassion, a gift to the soul yearning for vitality, justice, and joy. In this brilliant work, Farley succeeds in demonstrating powerfully how it is that ‘attention to our interiority’ may ‘deepen our capacity for justice.’ A virtuoso performance in the traditions of wisdom and compassion in light of our contemporary world. Her book is a gift for us—and quite possibly for the ages." —Sharon D. Welch, Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Religious Studies, University of Missouri, Columbia, author of Sweet Dreams in America: Making Ethics and Spirituality Work
"I could not put this book down! It has been a long time since I read a theological book that so enthralled me. Farley is quite a compelling writer, and her topic is one that speaks directly to questions that people of faith struggle with in today’s world. I am fascinated by Farley’s rhetoric and drawn to its form, wishing that there were more theologians willing to so boldly and unapologetically argue for a universal vision of Christian flourishing. Wandering through the pages of the book, you are introduced to a ‘way of thinking’ that is distinct and engaging. Like Paul Tillich’s The Courage to Be, this book goes beyond the expected terrain of scholarship and will speak to a wider audience eager for such writing." —Serene Jones, Professor of Theology, Yale Divinity School, author of Feminist Theory and Christian Theology: Cartographies of Grace
"What a movingly, persuasively first-order text. Farley has woven a wisdom-text from the wounded, open heart of Christianity: the sort of reflection on the pervasive immediacies of desire, bubbling up out of the depths and dark nights of her own, that theologians and other academics may write about, but cannot write." —Catherine Keller, Professor of Constructive Theology, Drew University, author of Face of the Deep
