A Timely Resource

Elizabeth Caldwell believes that “The wrestling that is most needed by people of faith today and by congregations is how we understand who God is in relation to difference” (3). God’s Big Table showcases her own wrestling with this issue and it challenges readers to step into the ring and begin wrestling with it themselves. This book is a timely and valuable resource for families, congregations, and Christian educators who wish to imbue respect, appreciation, and understanding of difference in the lives of young people. But it does not deserve to find a home among the bookshelves of seminaries, church libraries, and living room bookcases; its home ought to in the hands of parents, grandparents, teachers, ministers, curriculum writers, and all others who are responsible for the spiritual formation of children. Come to the table. Elizabeth Caldwell has reserved a seat for you.
