Item Description...
Overview
Invites readers to an authentic vision of selfhood, calling us to be proactive in our interactions with others.

Publishers Description
The third book in Wicks' new series looks at the theological and pastoral implications of living the biblical command to be hospitable to the stranger. On the theological level, the book offers concern for the stranger as a pattern for Christian social action. On the pastoral level, the book challenges all Christians to see the stranger the way Christ saw the stranger -- and to act accordingly. The central image of Christian hospitality is the Kingdom of God, which is addressed mainly to the poor and the displaced. As a verb and not a noun, the Kingdom of God actively counters today's suspicion, selfishness, and aggression.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A new take on homelessness  Mar 23, 2002
The philosopher Martin Heidegger once said that homelessness is the contemporary problem par excellence. His point isn't that there are too many people living on the streets (although, to our undying shame, there are). Rather, he wants to draw our attention to a deeper malaise: the alienated sense that there's no safe place in which to dwell, that we no longer understand what it means to have a home.

In this short (79 pages) book, Father Lucien Richard explores this theme by focusing on a virtue--hospitality--that both the ancient pagan world and the Christian tradition hold. Hospitality, kindness to strangers, is only possible when one has a sense of home. Today, we often think of home as an utterly private enclosure against the world--every person's home is his/her castle, and the world better keep out! But in fact home ought to be seen as a place where we can grow and develop, and where we can invite others to do likewise. Until we return to a worthier understanding of home, we can't expect to live up to the virtue of hospitality.

Richard's analysis of home and hospitality in terms of mutuality and intimacy not only speaks to us as individuals; it also has obvious implications for social and political situations. A provocative read far weightier than one might suspect from its size.
