About this book

This book imagines new modes of religious response to trauma, moving beyond simple answers to the ‘why’ of human suffering toward discussions of profound expressions of faith in the aftermath of trauma. Engaging current realities such as war, race, and climate change, chapters feature specific locations from which theology is done and draw on the resources of Christian faith in order to respond. This volume recognizes religious leaders as first-responders to trauma and offers theological reflections that can stand up in the current realities of violence and its aftermath. The writings provide models for how to integrate the language of faith with the literature of trauma.

Reviews

“This was an enjoyable book to read. I liked how each author of the essays was able to take their own topic and run with it. There is so much trauma in the world and we often do not know how to deal with it. Hopefully, this book … will help us learn more about dealing with trauma.” (Justin Dilliplane, Resolved for Christ, resolvedfc.blogspot.de, January, 2018)
