Abstract:

There 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."--The Preface.
