9780764814105: Where There's Hope There's Life, Women's Stories of Homelessness and Survival

This book introduces readers to twelve homeless women in a way that will change our perception of the poor on our streets. Here, we encounter them in their own voices. We discover their pain while we realize their beauty and strength. Their stories are not intended to elicit guilt or pity, but to evoke compassionate understanding and a concrete response. These stories help us to identify more closely with the homeless and forgotten people who are not far from any of us. As we fall in love with them (and one another) we realize that, above all, where there's hope, there's life.

Book Description Liguori Publications,U.S., United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. annotated edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Many people know about homelessness or have known a homeless person, but they have never personally experienced homelessness. This book introduces readers to actual homeless people with real identities and lives. These twelve short, personal stories are deeply moving and compelling and speak volumes about the lives of the truly poor among us. The appendix of the book offers a practical theology of homelessness, i.e., what it means to be Christian among the homeless. Thus, the book provides an outside study of homelessness alongside the multifaceted inside look from those who live with homelessness every day. Homelessness: Where There s Hope, There s Life will help readers integrate an implicit pastoral theology with a more explicit pastoral spirituality of understanding and compassion.
