Ragman : And Other Cries Of Faith


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.
