Dave Bookless has reviewed this compilation of stories from around the world, edited by Hannah Malcom.
‘Words for a Dying World’ is a must-read but not a comfortable one. It’s voices are highly diverse yet disturbingly consistent, articulating the agony of places and peoples, and wrestling to integrate Christian grief and hope amidst ecological collapse.
This is a book to read in small doses and return to often. It’s painful, messy, beautiful, incomplete, and deeply disturbing. Yet, particularly with Hannah Malcolm’s introduction and conclusion, it is placed within a biblical narrative of creation, redemption and hope that can only be encountered through deep loss and grief. I recommend it without hesitation.
