Description

Alienation and Connection addresses social constructs that perpetuate alienation through suffering. The contributors discuss how alienation through suffering in a variety of contexts can be transformed into connection and reconnection: human relationship with the environment, economic and social systems that disconnect and reconnect, cultural constructs that divide or can heal, encountered difference that brings opportunity, and various manifestations of personal pain that can be survived and even overcome.show more

This volume adds compelling, well-crafted, therapeutic approaches to the growing literature of theologies for the healing of the nations of the earth. -- Marion Grau, Church Divinity School of the Pacificshow more
