Jonathan Wilson-HartgroveIn 2013, we are encouraging our readers to mix up their reading habits, and read (or re-read) classics in addition to new books, such as the ones we review here in the ERB.

Broadly speaking, a classic is any book that is not a new book, or in other words that is worth reading five, ten or even one hundred years after its initial publication. ERB Editor Chris Smith has an article on The Huffington Post website arguing for reading a mix of classics and new books in 2013.

We’ve asked a number of noted writers to pick the classics that they often return to, and we will be running these lists as a weekly feature on our website through 2013.

This week’s post in the series is by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove.

Writers on the Classics:
[ #1 – Shane Claiborne ] [ Most recent, #3 – Scott Russell Sanders ]

Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove is the author of many books, including our 2010 Book of the Year The Wisdom of Stability. Jonathan is a member of the Rutba House Christian community in Durham, NC, and most of his writing connects in one way or another with his experience as part of an intentional Christian community. His latest book is The Awakening of Hope, which was mentioned on our Best Books of 2012 list.

Greg Barrett - The Gospel of RutbaA Mirror to the World

A Feature Review of

The Gospel of Rutba: War, Peace, and the Good Samaritan Story in Iraq

Greg Barrett

Hardback: Orbis Books, 2012.
Buy now:  [ Amazon ]  [ Kindle ]

Reviewed by Paul Chaplin.

““Why, why, WHY?” Dr. Al-Dulaimi demanded. […] “Sir, I wish I knew,” [Shane] responded in his East Tennessee accent. “But I don’t know either.” […] “You are safe in Rutba,” Dr. Al-Dulaimi told Shane. “You are our brothers and we will take care of you. We take care of everyone – Christian, Muslim, Iraqi, American. It doesn’t matter. We are all human beings. We are all sisters and brothers.”” (50)

It is a great pleasure to have read and be reviewing this book for ERB, particularly since it was at Englewood Christian Church that I had the chance in 2009 to meet Cliff Kindy, and hear the tale from his own mouth which forms the premise for this book, complete with show-and-tell head-wound scars. It is a story that many ERB readers may have read in abbreviated form in books by Shane Claiborne or Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, but it is a story that deserves telling completely, and one of the achievements of the book is to do just that.
