Read full description of the books:America thrives on a simple message-that what we currently have is not enough. Not big enough, not nice enough, not fast or hip enough.The American dream is based on wanting more. But does God's dream for the world look like the American Dream?In this five-week study, unpack what the patterns of God's kingdom look like compared to the patterns of our world. What is the value of enough, and how do we become more like the God who is close to the poor, the hungry, the meek, and the merciful?Economy of Love will challenge individuals to join in community, journeying together as they begin to consider a new standard of living-a personal economic threshold oriented not around the size of a monthly paycheck, but around the value of enough.
Read information about the authorMy love of God and my love of the arts seem to have begun simultaneously. I can not remember which awed me first. By age eight I was both an avid collector of crucifix pendants and a writer of poems. Thankfully those first poems are lost somewhere on the African continent.
Fast forward years later through stints in English boarding school, pew-warming in Anglican, Lutheran, Methodist, and Presbyterian Churches, study in Bolivia, seemingly endless nights sleeping on a Kenyan animal reserve, annual mission trips guiding college kids through Central America, and now, settled life in quiet North Carolina, I am still in love with God and with the arts.
After having spent the a few years serving as the Director of the Center for Theological Writing at Duke University Divinity School I left to pursue my love of writing and teaching through retreats and workshops. My forthcoming spiritual memoir, Reluctant Pilgrim, will be available October 2010 by the Fresh Air Books, an imprint of the UpperRoom Publishers. Available in December 2010 is a much anticipated resource I am excited to have been a part of: Common Prayerbook co-authored with Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove will be published through Zondervan."
