An Alien in a Strange Land
Theology in the Life of William Stringfellow
Imprint: Cascade Books
"For me and many others, the life and work of William Stringfellow were seminal in developing a biblical public theology. In what Anthony Dancer calls 'biographical theology,' this book lays out the social and political context that influenced and informed Stringfellow's theology of public discipleship. I commend it to anyone seeking for an authentic way of living faithfully, and enacting what Stringfellow called 'biblical politics.'"
author of Rediscovering Values: On Wall Street, Main Street and Your Street
"Few American Christians have borne such powerful witness to the word of God and the life of the Christian as did William Stringfellow. While superbly situating him in his own turbulent historical moment, Anthony Dancer also makes clear how powerfully we need to listen to the voice of Stringfellow today."

"This book is a gift. In the absence of a definitive biography, for which we may yet hope, Dancer provides us the most thorough reflection to date on William Stringfellow's life. In the process he establishes himself, not only as a biographic theologian, but a voice in the Stringfellonian tradition. May his own summon a new generation to 'Listen to this Man.'"
editor of Keeper of the Word: Selected Writings of William Stringfellow
''...Stringfellow is a timely yet complicated voice which ought to be heard, and Anthony Dancer's An Alien in a Strange Land is just the microphone we need to amplify that voice.''
--Michael Bowling, as reviewed in the Englewood Review of Books
