In this series of reflections that takes us through the liturgical year, Michael Northcott explores themes of ecology, ethics and economics. He speaks on the matters that affect us all, and that indeed find expression in newspapers and many other forms of media, but seeks to hold true also to Barth's injunction that a preacher's primary role is to hear and study the Word of God. Northcott's incisive words bring into clear focus the role of preaching as public theology, a political and prophetic task that can challenge received opinions and dominant modes of operating. Cuttle Fish, Clones and Cluster Bombs is an inspiring and encouraging read for anyone seeking a real engagement with the divine Word in our contemporary world.
