Endorsements & Reviews-
''Lowry has a keen sense for the right word at the right place in the sentence, a right placing that weaves midst the listeners a place of truth, a summons to justice, an offer of love, a risk of honesty, and a wonder of healing.''
--from the Foreword by Walter Brueggemann
''Jim Lowry helps us to hear our story walking beside the biblical story so that we listen to the two of them wrestle, argue, fight with, and even embrace one another. Then the biblical story is not a relic of the past, but living and present.''
--Donald Davis, storyteller
''Jim Lowry's Low-Back, Ladder-Back, Cane-Bottom Chair is a banquet of lyric preaching that will surprise, delight, and even heal your soul. Lowry is a master maggid (storyteller) in the finest tradition of classical Jewish midrash. His teaching is a rich blend of literary imagination and good spiritual cousel.''
--Rabbi Lawrence Kushner, author of Invisible Lines of Connection and Eyes Remade for Wonder.
