Through insightful interpretation and storytelling, And Morning Came reflects on the central mystery of faith: how new life springs from death. In this powerful exploration through the Resurrection Scriptures, McKenna helps us know the Gospel writers, grasp unique aspects of their Resurrection accounts, and see the connections their stories have to our own experience of Christ's incarnation, passion, death, and resurrection. Ecumenical in scope, And Morning Came is a call to discover who we really are in light of God's eternal love and to live our lives to the fullest.
Here is Megan McKenna at her best-showing how the central mystery of the gospel meets the deepest desire of our hearts. The Resurrection is not just something we believe in. It is something we live. -- Robert Ellsberg, author of All Saints: Daily Reflections on Saints, Prophets, and Witnesses for Our Time Into what a world we launch this book, like a frail ark in a mauling sea. Shall we proclaim Resurrection-even as creation is threatened with going under? Yes, "And morning came." Unequivocally and barely-birth, rebirth wins out over death. Thank you, Megan. -- Daniel Berrigan, author of Lamentations: From New York to Kabul and Beyond McKenna sensitively unpacks the challenging and joyful promise at the heart of Christianity and lays out the ethical guidance it provides through its reminder of life through resurrection.
