What if we
could actually change the world by telling better stories? What if the
world we have-with its racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, religious
hatred, ecological disregard-is exactly the world we have spun into
existence through the stories we have told? In his new book, Melvin Bray
insists that a better world is possible if the stories around which we
organize our lives begin to match the beauty we imagine is possible.
Bray puts forth his own daring yet faithful reimaginings of classic
faith stories that inspire more beautiful, more just, more virtue-filled
ways of being in the world.
Better offers a spiritual path on which
people-for whom life has called into question many of their assumptions
about God and the world-can continue to hold onto their faith, while
joining others of goodwill in seeking sustainable, cooperative, and
courageous answers to the seemingly intractable problems of our time.
