Is There a Heaven for a “G”?
A Pastoral Care Approach to Gang Violence
Imprint: Resource Publications
"Through powerful narrative laced with profound insight, Rev. Danielle Buhuro proclaims a role for the hospital chaplain in a society saturated with violence. While acknowledging grief and outrage, she points to a hopeful wisdom learned from experience, refined by training, and rooted in the Scriptures. Is There a Heaven for a G? is a must read, not just for ministry professionals, but for all caregivers who reach out to people and families who have been victimized by violence."
--Curtiss Paul DeYoung, Executive Director, Community Renewal Society, Chicago
"Is there a heaven for a G? Buhuro poignantly brings this question to the fore as it takes shape at ground zero of the brutal violence gripping the Black community in Chicago. Through a deft exploration through the lens of pastoral care of the systemic and relational sources of this communal violence, she has created a resource that is a must-read for anyone engaged in, or preparing for, ministry within communities dealing with cycles of lethal violence."
--Stephen G. Ray Jr., Neal A. and Ila F. Fisher Professor of Theology, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
