*** Our Starred New Book of the Week:
The Home of God: A Brief Story of Everything
Miroslav Volf and Ryan McAnnally-Linz
( Brazos Press )
We live in the midst of a crisis of home. It is evident in the massive uprooting and migration of millions across the globe, in the anxious nationalism awaiting immigrants in their destinations, in the unhoused populations in wealthy cities, in the fractured households of families, and in the worldwide destruction of habitats and international struggles for dominance. It is evident, perhaps more quietly but just as truly, in the aching sense that there is nowhere we truly belong.
In this moment, the Christian faith has been disappointingly inept in its response. We need a better witness to the God who created, loves, and reconciles this world, who comes to dwell among us.
This book tells the “story of everything” in which God creates the world as the home for humans and for God in communion with God’s creatures. The authors render the story of creation, redemption, and consummation through the lens of God’s homemaking work and show the theological fruit of telling the story this way. The result is a vision that can inspire creative Christian living in our various homes today in faithfulness to God’s ongoing work.
