This poetry becomes an agent of transformation in offering a new direction for our lives. It provokes a little holy agitation by tossing poems like pebbles into placid pools of water to cause some waves. Such poetry gives us prophetic alerts to pay attention to things that matter, like peace not war, like economic and immigrant justice, like an earthy passion for life more than death. This book of poems describes a link between poets and peacemakers: Maybe peacemakers are like insurgent poets, Irrelevant, dissident, disregarding the status quo, Imagining a vision of a world that gets along This poetry--too dangerous for right wing religion--will offer a resource for church activists and for taking the next step of courage. It will be a companion for marching to a different drummer and hearing the still voice of God amplified through ordinary occasions.

Book Description Wipf & Stock Publishers, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Description: This poetry becomes an agent of transformation in offering a new direction for our lives. It provokes a little holy agitation by tossing poems like pebbles into placid pools of water to cause some waves. Such poetry gives us prophetic alerts to pay attention to things that matter, like peace not war, like economic and immigrant justice, like an earthy passion for life more than death.

It will be a companion for marching to a different drummer and hearing the still voice of God amplified through ordinary occasions. Endorsements: In Prophetic Poetry Faust takes a creative approach to peacemaking and exposes our irrational, morally bankrupt addiction to violence and materialism. While challenging our comfortable lives, Prophetic Poetry offers an essential vision of our world if we wish, in Faust's words, to expose our 'false peace, ' awaken the "shopper who walks around in a trance," and transform that which 'drains our soul of joy and life.' He uses 'the imagination of a poet. to touch the heart' and celebrates the passion and courage it will take to foster a 'revolution in values.' --Ira Haritt Kansas City Program Coordinator, American Friends Service Committee About the Contributor(s): Ron Faust works with Interfaith Worker Justice, American Friends Service Committee, Immigration Justice Advocacy Movement, and Disciples Peace Fellowship in Kansas City. Born in Eugene, Oregon and growing up in Vancouver, Washington, his educational odyssey included an undergraduate degree from Northwest Christian College (NCU), MDiv from Christian Theological Seminary and a doctorate from Drew University. Previously he collaborated with Toni Faust on a book about grand parenting and a fictional work called Gaps by his pen name Mac Keyes. Now a retired Minister-Sailor-Curmudgeon turned Poet, he follows his passion by giving his attention to peace and justice issues. Seller Inventory # AAV9781608990979
