The God of Second Chances
Finding Hope through the Prophets of Exile
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Clark's probe of prophets is itself prophetic: this book has the potential to move the church from despair to hope, from somnolence to divine presence, from wake-up to dream again."
--Leonard Sweet, Drew University
"Readers [can] expect to find in this book a deep, pastoral sensibility, a compelling narrative art, and an awareness of systemic arrangements that continue to produce hopelessness and displacement among us. Clark provides ready access to the issues that concern us most now."
--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary
"Today's church often seems disconnected from both the suffering world and from its own sacred texts . . . With clarity, passion, pastoral sensibility, and an accurate, though not technical, understanding of Scripture, Clark invites readers into a world, not as it is, but as it should--and could--be. Read this book. More importantly, live prophetically and with imaginative joy."
--Mark W. Hamilton, Abilene Christian University
"No doubt you will be changed by Clark's powerful stories of personal ministry with the marginalized and his vision of hope through our loving God."
--Kevin Palau, Luis Palau Association
"Clark combines expertise in biblical literature with page-turning accounts of life amidst the marginalized, creating a rare and exquisite meshing of two worlds where hope is promised to a crushed people. Essential reading for those who dare to minister."
--David Fleer, Lipscomb University
