What Love Can Do is about the Kingdom of God—‘The Way’—and its practical application in today’s fractured world. Spiritually progressive and insightful, the book challenges the institutional Church’s long-standing neglect of a Way that was the central focus of the Gospel Jesus and his immediate followers. What Love Can Do includes wisdom from major world religions and non-religious sources alike. It highlights the Way as a living, dynamic politics of peace, justice and compassion, and covers such topics as celebration, truth, faith and trust, the prayer of quiet, reconciling community and hospitality. The Way as a source of nonviolent political and spiritual liberation is also discussed along with its affinity to ecological sustainability and the-more-than-human-world. Those who want an exciting, visionary, down-to-earth theology and/or have suffered at the hands of the Church and non-religious ideologies, will find consolation, meaning, direction and purpose in this book. It is also ideal for personal reflection, group discussion, course leaders and their participants, as well as for theological students and spiritual directors/companions.
