From climate injustice and Black Lives Matter to violence against women. From discrimination against Dalits in India and the coronavirus pandemic to inequality in Myanmar, Rage & Hope is a call to collective lament and prayer.
Full of defiance and determination, it is an invitation to join Christian Aid and followers of Jesus around the world in a united chorus of Rage and Hope.
Bringing together voices from different contexts and cultures around the world, this is a collection of prayers of lament for the injustices of the world, and prayers of hope for the world we want to see. With a foreword from Walter Brueggemann, one of the world’s leading theologians, it also features contributions from writer Rhidian Brook, Professor Robert Beckford, John Bell, Bishop Rachel Treweek and Bishop Paul Butler.
Published by SPCK, Rage and Hope also includes a prayer from Dr Rowan Williams, chair of Christian Aid and the former Archbishop of Canterbury.
The world is broken, full of injustice and inequality, but despite everything, we hope.
