9780814646212: When God Was Flesh and Wild: Stories in Defense of the Earth

When God Was Flesh and Wild is dramatic and whimsical storytelling for adults at the service of faith and justice. Artist, storyteller, and theologian Bob Haverluck offers a rollicking set of stories—together with provocative cartoons and original music—that provide poetic takes on Daniel’s king of bigger and more; Jesus of the wilderness; Easter week, Jesus and the creaturely earth; and prison island John and the musical earth.

The result is a more imaginative way to engage issues of conflict against the earth and her creatures in the light of God’s abiding providence and the witness of Scripture. Humorous, harsh, and persistently hopeful, When God Was Flesh and Wild will be an unforgettable reading experience for any person of faith.

About the Author:

Bob Haverluck is an artist storyteller who works with community groups using the arts to help engage issues of conflict and violence against the earth and her creatures. Recently he has been resident artist for three year-long arts-based ecology projects attentive to rivers, lakes and forests. His drawings have appeared in Harpers, New Statesman, Arts: Arts in Religious and Theological Studies, etc. Bob has led courses and conferences on the arts, the Bible, and social change with particular attention to the role of comedy and community. From 2001 to 2003 he was artist-in-residence at the University of Winnipeg. His book publications include Love Your Enemies . . . and Other Neighbours... and Peace: Perspectives on Peace/Conflict.

Review:

When God Was Flesh and Wild is in a word, rollicking—a hoot and a reverential treat. It’s a first aid kit for the soul. These rug pulling parables in word and wit and visual wizardry spark gratitude and delight.”
Edward Foley, Dun Scotus Professor of Spirituality Professor of Liturgy and Music; Catholic Theological Union, Chicago



“Wild and wonderful! These words spring to mind reading Bob Haverluck’s stories and meditating on his drawings. What a gift his rich imagination is to us plodding types who cannot dance, draw or write parables. We say another world is possible but how we can imagine such a world depends on the genius of folks such as Haverluck.”
Sallie McFague, Professor of Theology, Emerita, Vanderbilt University Divinity School, Nashville
