As society becomes increasingly fragmented and the poverty gap widens in a time of austerity, there is a growing feeling that a better world must be possible. But how can we discover a just and loving alternative that is true to God? Combining moving stories from the inner city with a fresh approach to the gospel, Faith in Dark Places explores the revolutionary idea that the good news of God's love is being spoken to a divided world by those rejected a worthless: the homeless and the poor.
This radically revised edition draws on recent theological research and the author's knowledge of urban poverty to offer powerful new insights into key biblical texts, including the Lord's Prayer, the parables of Jesus and the Magnificat. Gripping, heart-wrenching and often surprisingly humorous, Faith in Dark Places presents us with a visible reminder of what the gospel is truly all about.
