Wild Hope: Stories for Lent from the Vanishing by Gayle Boss
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Boss is a very good writer and conveys her ideas well. This book is very sad to think about how man's dominion over creation is many times selfish domination instead of careful stewardship.
There is less directly about Jesus and his sufferings in this book than I might have expected for a Lenten read. There is too much to feel about than can be done about, which can be a danger of numbing ourselves and overwhelming us. I was grateful that the Resurrection reading was joyful and hopeful.
She says in her intro that she didn't share these stories with her kids when they were young and she wished now that she had. I'm still not sure that I would with my teens (and near teen). It was sad every single day; I started to dread it.
