Worldly Wisdom and Foolish Grace

  • By Barbara Carnegie Campbell
  • Foreword by Arif Humayun, Batya Podos
Product Description
Rabbi Jesus interpreted the teachings of Torah to his followers. The Prophet Mohammad received a divine revelation centuries later that returned his people to the faith of Abraham. The holy texts of all three Abrahamic faiths, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, teach compassion, generosity, and nonviolence. While culture and politics often speak one understanding of ""wisdom,"" each of these faith traditions asks very different and difficult behavior of their followers, i.e., loving enemies, showing compassion for all, and giving away wealth to serve the poor; in other words, grace-filled living which the world sees as ""foolish."" Worldly Wisdom and Foolish Grace reflects on ten of the hardest words spoken in Abraham's tent, places ""foolish grace"" up against ""worldly wisdom,"" and asks us to choose which road to take.
