Item description for Wrestling for Blessing by Marilyn McCord Adams...
This collection of sermons offers the reader a series of reflections that are both profound and intimately playful. The reflections are oriented toward justice in the public sphere, yet remain focused on Christian personal growth and transformation. Known internationally for her academic and historical writings, in this work, Professor Adams brings her powerful theological and philosophical conclusions to bear on the practical and pastoral questions of contemporary Christian life. Mostly preached in various parishes in Los Angeles, California, where Adams is in residence at St. Mary in the Palms, these sermons seek to integrate difficult issues - such as the plurality of religions, questions of sexuality, race, and inequality - with the daily life of the Christian community.
