A Sort of Homecoming
Essays Honoring the Academic and Community Work of Brian Walsh
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Be forewarned, this collection will leave you with a case of holy homesickness. This bouquet of contributions explores a range of themes in Brian's work--eschatology, empire, ecology, and exegesis--held together by a robust thread of home. Poetry, places, and stories make it more than a festschrift; it's an ode to the beauty of home and a prayer of longing to be at home--with God, one another, and all creation."
--Christopher B. James, author of Church Planting in Post-Christian Soil
"Whether in the dirt of the garden or in a seminary basement, Brian's work has always been underground. This collection of subversive essays pulls us into the upside-down kingdom of God: a journey both liberating and disorienting. For some, these words will be offensive. For others, they will be full of hope. It all depends which side of the surface you wish to make home."
--Kevin Makins, Pastor of Eucharist Church and author of Why Would Anyone Go to Church?
"This book will open your ears to the hope and homecoming embedded in the Scripture's story, with a chorus of voices serving as an encore to the vivid work of Brian Walsh. You should take in this show, and then read it again. It's that good. And that important."
--Byron Borger, Hearts and Minds Books
