It’s a disturbing reality that otherness—the simple fact of being different in some way—has come to be defined as, in and of itself, evil. Author Miroslav Volf contends that if the healing word of the gospel is to be heard today, Christians must learn that salvation comes not only as we are reconciled to God, and not only as we “learn to live with one another,” but also as we take the dangerous and costly step of opening ourselves to the other, of enfolding him or her in the same embrace with which we‘ve been enfolded by God. Volf offers this second edition of Exclusion and Embrace with additional examples of cultural, ethnic, and racial conflict that help to illustrate his point that embracing otherness is rooted in God’s self-giving love and forgiveness.
