Stories from the Street is a theological exploration of interviews with men and women who had experienced homelessness at some stage in their lives. Framed within a theology of story and a theology of liberation, Nixon suggests that story is not only a vehicle for creating human transformation but it is one of God's chosen means of effecting change. Short biographies of twelve characters are examined under themes including: crises in health and relationships, self-harm and suicide, anger and pain, God and the Bible. Expanding the existing literature of contextual theology, this book provides an alternative focus to a church-shaped mission by advocating with, and for, a very marginal group; suggesting that their experiences have much to teach the church. Churches are perceived as being active in terms of pastoral work, but reluctant to ask more profound questions about why homelessness exists at all. A theology of homelessness suggests not just a God of the homeless, but a homeless God, who shares stories and provides hope. Engaging with contemporary political and cultural debates about poverty, housing and public spending, Nixon presents a unique theological exploration of homeless people, suffering, hope and the human condition.

This volume, based on seventy-three sermons that consecutively cover Matthew's Gospel, receives strength through the very roughness and directness of the word spoken under the inspiration of vast, visible audiences while addressed to the impressionable hearts of men. From first to last, the various units in the exposition proceed on the assumption that it was the intention of the writer to set forth the Person of our Lord in relation to His kingly office. So from the mystic account of His advent in human history, through the record of the authority of His ethical enunciation, the mercifulness of His method, the majesty of His death, and the glory of His resurrection, to the ringing claim of "all authority," and the clarion command to "disciple the nations," we are ever in the presence of the King. In an enthusiastic review, the Sunday School Times observes, "It will prove a mine of treasure for teaching the Sunday­ school lessons. There is hardly a page from which some expression of great force does not strike out at the reader."

Jeannette Walls ist ein glückliches Kind: Sie hat einen Vater, der mit ihr auf Dämonenjagd geht, ihr die Physik erklärt und die Sterne vom Himmel holt. Da nimmt sie gerne in Kauf, immer mal wieder mit leerem Bauch ins Bett zu gehen, ihre egomanische Künstlermutter zu ertragen oder in Nacht-und-Nebel-Aktionen den Wohnort zu wechseln. Mit den Jahren allerdings werden die sozialen Verhältnisse schlimmer, die Sprüche des Vaters schaler und das Lügengebäude der Eltern so zerbrechlich wie das Schloss aus Glas, das der Vater jahrelang zu bauen versprochen hatte.

"Billige Gnade ist der Todfeind unserer Kirche. Unser Kampf heute geht um die teure Gnade." Für Dietrich Bonhoeffer gibt es keinen lebendigen Glauben ohne Gehorsam. Seit seinem Studienaufenthalt in New York, wo er eine Hinwendung zu einem persönlichen Christusglauben erlebte, sind seine Theologie und Spiritualität geprägt von der Sehnsucht, die Anweisungen der Bergpredigt wörtlich zu nehmen. Die Nachfolge, wie sie die Bergpredigt fordert, zur Mitte und zum Motor seiner Theologie und seines Lebens geworden. Wichtigstes Dokument dieses Strebens ist sein Buch "Nachfolge", eine Auslegung der Bergpredigt, die damals wie heute inspiriert, Jesus zu folgen. Die Einführung von Peter Zimmerling erläutert die Hintergründe des 1937 erstmals erschienenen Buches und zeigt, dass Bonhoeffer Leiter eines Predigerseminars der Bekennenden Kirche wurde, weil ihm damit ein Experimentierfeld zur praktischen Umsetzung seiner Gedanken zur Nachfolge zur Verfügung stand.
