Ragman (20th Anniversary Edition)

Walter Wangerin (Jr)

$31.99

Paperback
Updated with eleven new stories and meditations, this Gold Medallion-winning classic interweaves vivid stories, deep meditations, and provocative allegories that together explore the power and meaning of love within an often inhumane urban landscape. The opening chapter, "Ragman," remains one of Walter Wangerin Jr.'s most beloved works and leads the reader to thirty-three other writings, all bearing the author's trademark poignancy and lyricism. Ranging from gentle reflections to heart-rending invocations, these selections are powerful, thought-provoking explorations of the meaning of faith, the person of Christ, and the communion of believers. Again and again, Wangerin's cries of faith touch our deepest pains with rays of joyful healing.

- Publisher First published in 1984, and now newly revised and expanded, Ragman and Other Cries of Faith helped to establish Wangerin's reputation as one of the most cutting-edge Christian writers on the market. It presents thirty-four interlocking "stories" in a variety of styles, ranging from gently reflective to incantatory. Together they embody a "story theology" that explores in fresh, powerful ways the meaning of faith, the persons of Christ, the community of faith, and the individual servant of faith. This collection interweaves short fiction, biblical stories, parables, autobiographical essays, prayers, meditations, poetry, drama, fable, and legend. The opening chapter, "Ragman" (still one of Wangerin's most quoted writings), is a moving parable about Jesus encountered in a most unexpected place---as a rag seller on the streets of a modern city. For this new edition, the author has provided eleven new pieces, making this an all-new, updated definitive edition.
