Review

A book for mystics and poets and troubadours of a new world. Brewin invites you to look into the eyes of others and squint a little - to see the image of God. He dares you to see the world with new eyes - to look into the mirror and see one who is beloved, to look into the eyes of the orphan and see Christ, to look into the eyes of those whom we find hard to like and catch a glimpse of the One we love. (Shane Claiborne)

With his new book Other, English author Kester Brewin joins Peter Rollins from Ireland and David Dark from the US as leading public theologians for a new generation of thoughtful Christians. He moves gracefully from Scripture to philosophy to pop culture to sociology and back to Scripture again, offering fresh, honest, and needed insights at each turn. I look forward to keeping up with this important voice in the years ahead. (Brian McLaren)

In our socially networked and technologically advanced world we remain surrounded by mystery: the mystery of others, the divine mystery and mystery that we are unto ourselves. OTHER masterfully explores how we might embrace this often complex reality and draws out how love of that which is other is central to the Christian experience. This is a work of rare beauty. (Peter Rollins, Ikon)

Half-mystic and half hard-core intellectual, Brewin here offers us an intimate, personable, completely accessible and, at times, hauntingly beautiful engagement with the hard questions of emergence theology. This is a brilliant work. It illumines with reverence and care the paradox that is faith, even as it speaks, always with vigour, of love and the reality that lies at the centre of our not-knowing. (Phyllis Tickle)

By turns startling, heart-warming and thought-provoking, Other opens up old themes for a new generation. There are plenty of books that tell you what you expect to hear. This, I'm happy to say, is not one of them. (Maggi Dawn)

...a brave, generous, wide-ranging and challenging exploration of the essential task facing us all as humans: to love ourselves, God and our neighbours in a world of fractures... It is a book which will become treasured in our festival's community. Indeed, if Greenbelt had a curriculum, OTHER would be required reading. (Paul Northup, Greenbelt Festival)
