Can we cry Freedom when the dream has died? What kind of spirituality do we need to find our way through the labyrinth of violence, greed and despair that characterizes our age? How can we emerge free and hopeful? In this book, Mary Grey urges usMoreCan we cry Freedom when the dream has died? What kind of spirituality do we need to find our way through the labyrinth of violence, greed and despair that characterizes our age? How can we emerge free and hopeful? In this book, Mary Grey urges us powerfully to find hope precisely where hope seems lost. The present moment, she says, is Gods time, the kairos that challenges us to attend to time itself and re-imagine our attitudes to its rhythms. She offers a dialogue with the prophetic vision of Isaiah, who in a similar time of crisis awakened Israels memory of its past so as to recover a spirituality of resistance.Millennial times, says Mary Grey, are times of the Spirit, when we look for a new and subversive language for the sacred. They are times of Wisdom, that biblical figure which encompasses both the tragedy and the joy that permeate humanitys search. To pursue this Wisdom is at the same time to pursue hope -- outrageously!
