Item Description...
* Topic of interest to virtually all mainline American Christians that is rarely discussed in the pulpit. * Lively writing from a good mixture of well-known and undiscovered authors * Unusual preaching and pastoral resource for clergy. * Will appeal to Christians of many different theologies. We hear about heaven and the supernatural on late-night TV far more often than in church, and many Christians never hear it mentioned seriously from the pulpit. Everyone has something to say about their hopes and fears for the afterlife, but the topic of eternity is usually left to the talk shows. Ironically heaven is ignored by contemporary Christian preachers who stress the dailiness and Athis-worldliness@ of religious faith. That emphasis is salutary, but it does tend to marginalize the subject of eternity rather than challenging and deepening our ideas through theological reflection. Each of the authors in this book was asked to write a short personal on the subject of heaven. This collection of essays gathers the hopes and reflections of theologians, novelists, and poets. The authors include Rick Moody, Nora Gallagher, Robert Orsi, Barbara Brown Taylor, Phyllis Tickle, Malcolm Boyd, Alan Jones, Cynthia Bourgeault, Donna Schaper, Susan Wheeler, and many others. These writings, which mix autobiography, story-telling, and theological reflection, are so poignant and wide-ranging that we can all find ourselves in them - and start telling our own stories about heaven.

Heavenly Reflections  Apr 20, 2007
This book of short essays on the topic of "Heaven" is a gem. These wise and wonderful writers offer a beautiful tapestry of visions of heaven "above" and of heavenly life here on earth. I highly recommend this book of essays for people from any spiritual or theological location. It is well worth a read, and I didn't put it down until I had read all the essays. Imagining heaven may help us get "there" and may help "there" get to us!
