Beautifully written and extraordinarily insightful, Learning to Dream Again is designed both for Christians who have been to church for years but long to ponder the ambiguities and hard questions of faith and life and for new Christians who are just beginning to investigate how the gospel connects to their most searching questions.The brief meditations brought together in this book aim at the development of a contemporary Christian wisdom that imitates Jesus' earthy humility, shameful suffering, and effervescent joy. Through the lens of this Christian wisdom and drawing on Scripture, Wells examines a number of difficult personal and social issues: taxes, abortion, torture, hunger, science, arts, and athletics, to name a few. Always in these discussions he comes back to the persistent claim that the heart of God is always to be for and with us. Learning to Dream Again beckons and enlivens our response to God's unwavering love for and delight in us.
