Beyond Homelessness

Christian Faith in a Culture of Displacement

From literature and art to advertising and the movies, from scholarly works to the popular press, the themes of home, homelessness, and homecoming are pervasive in contemporary culture. Moreover, say the authors, these motifs profoundly illuminate much of what is often called the postmodern age.

In Beyond Homelessness the authors illustrate and analyze various forms of homelessness: socio-economic, ecological, and psycho-spiritual. They then demonstrate how the Christian faith and the biblical story address the hurts of contemporary homelessness.
