About-

We live in a culture of collective fear over climate change and mass migration, and we experience increasing intense personal anxiety and despair. How might the Bible’s themes of homecoming and homemaking address our physical, emotional, and spiritual displacement? This collection of essays honors the academic and community work of Brian J. Walsh upon his retirement as Campus Minister at the University of Toronto Christian Reformed Campus Ministry. The collection is a stunning mosaic at once academic and personal—representing the many elements of Brian's life as pastor, theologian, professor, farmer, mentor, and friend. In an age when “home” feels physically and spiritually elusive for so many, this volume reawakens our imaginations to the foundational biblical themes of homecoming and homemaking. Academic, pastoral, personal, and timely, this volume honors Brian’s career and equips readers to engage the fear and anxiety of our age with the hope of the gospel.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"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
