This is a selection of writings on themes of trauma and transformation, hope and anguish, in a time of reckoning.

The first section is biographical fragments about life after the ""bulldozer"" runs you over. How do you get up? How do you live with others who don't understand? How do you keep walking? They draw upon life experiences in Boston, Iona, and New Jersey. Faith is not so much about agreeing with doctrine, but a dynamic, active, seeking, questioning, trust in God. It includes both audacity and humility.

The second section draws upon fragments of historical reflection, ""On Violent Innocence, Mourning, and Metanoia in New Jersey."" This is an exploration of the principality of white racism, state-based violence, and exploitation of the poor. It asks the question: How did the Confederate flag get in the front window of the Presbyterian church on Lincoln's birthday? Some of the white terrorism that happened at the Capitol is prefigured here. Yet there is grace hidden in judgment. We cannot heal from what we do not name.

The third section is fragments of prophetic wisdom from Lorna Goodison, Richard Fenn, Mike Gecan, Karen Hernandez-Granzen, and Archange Antoine. Along with Traci West and Chris Hedges, their voices are strong and true.

""This book comprises a scholar-pastor's theological and ethical reflections on his vocational journey in two highly racialized American cities. In solidarity with teachers and peers who share his quest for racial justice, Michael Granzen concludes this insightful treatise with five short essays by colleagues, including his wife. All who are concerned about our nation's racial divide will benefit greatly from the practical wisdom contained in this excellent book.""
--Peter J. Paris, Princeton Theological Seminary, emeritus

""Michael Granzen is one of the grand prophetic pastors and voices during these decaying days of the American empire! His powerful vision and courageous witness inspire so many of us.""
--Cornel West, Union Theological Seminary
