Can't give it away Oct 6, 2004
I'd like to sell a copy of this dull, meandering book, but right now it's available used starting at $0.01. In other words, not worth the paper it's printed on.
Disappointing Dec 30, 2000
Harris intends to extend the work of Bruggemann and others on the issue of Jubilee spirituality, but in my opinion fails. She is either unaware of how her biases play into the hermaneutic circle or doesn't care. She seems to assume that if one is seeking to follow God her argument is unassailable. This is not true.
Admittedly my resistance in part is due to my own reading of history, politics and scripture and my biases are many. However, I felt she failed to attempt to engage those who operate from a different place. Her most interesting work was in refence to the Sabbath, and our need for the same.
