This book goes far beyond covering the subject of homelessness as the social problem we all recognize in our cities. Mass emigrations, displaced families, and human alienation from the earth all mark our times. In critiquing contemporary North American culture, Steven Bouma-Prediger and Brian Walsh discuss various forms of homelessness
socioeconomic, ecological, and psycho-spiritual
and creatively show how biblical attentiveness and Christian faith can heal the profound dislocations in our society.
Ending each of their chapters with a moving biblical meditation, the authors also interact throughout with characters and themes from current literature and popular culture
from Salman Rushdie to Barbara Kingsolver, from the Wizard of Oz to Bruce Cockburn.
