Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: To Bruce Epperly and Lewis Solomon, how we view our encounter with death is much like a story of sculptor Michelangelo rolling a boulder up the hillside to the front of his house. When the sculptor took out his hammer and began pounding on the jagged rock, his neighbor was overcome with curiosity. "What are you doing hammering on that boulder?" the neighbor asked. The sculptor replied, "There’s an angel inside, and I’m trying to let it out." To the creative imagination, an unpromising exterior may hide a work of art. To the holy imagination, "angels" spring forth in the most unlikely situations.

Weaving together faith and practice, Epperly and Solomon show us how progressive Judaism and Christianity provide tools for transformation and prescriptions for wholeness. Through theological reflection, spiritual practices, stories from everyday life, and Jewish and Christian wisdom, Epperly and Solomon inspire progressive Christians and Jews to affirm life in the midst of death and strength amid vulnerability. Spiritual healing, the authors say, does not depend on our efforts, but on our openness to the Holy One whose compassion brings hope and possibility.
