Item Description...
Overview
Law encourages us to stop denying the conflicts that arise out of the differences within us and among us and to allow differing perspectives to affirm, enrich, or challenge one another. He proposes practical disciplines, models, and techniques, and includes appendices for Christian educators and pastors. The Word at the Crossings also includes many of the short plays that Rev. Law incorporates into his worship presentations.

Publishers Description
Eric Law believes that we are called by God to actively seek encounters with people who are different from us because at the crossings of our differences of race, culture, gender, sexual orientations, ability, economic class, and theology, lies the opportunity to widen our understanding of the gospel. But how do we open our hearts and our minds to such pluralism and live as God intends us to live? How can we be transformed by our differences as we seek to align ourselves with God? Eric Law invites readers to follow him on a journey of discovery, a path to connect with Christ's way, truth, and life. He encourages us to stop denying the conflicts that arise out of the differences within us and between us and to name these conflicts, allowing differing perspectives to affirm, enrich, or challenge one another. He proposes practical disciplines, models, and techniques to help us communicate openly, honestly, and without judgment with ourselves, with others, and with nature. Law shares his personal stories and experiences and calls us to explore our own stories, frameworks, and God-concepts that we may grow in and live the Good News. For those called to serve in God's church, The Word at the Crossings includes appendices with specific exercises and techniques for Christian educators and pastors, including a sermon preparation model.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A rehash of his other works  Mar 13, 2005
If this is the first book you read by him you might find it beneficial. However, if you have read other books by him, you will find the contents to be a rehash of his other books, without the passion and imagination that is found in those books. For most of the chapters, he says what his theme for the chapter is going to be then footnotes another one of his books. This footnote shows that the ideas are found in another book by him.

The one new element in this book is about sermon preparation. This gave a way for a minister to prepare a sermon.
