This is a faith-based response to tricky and anxiety-provoking times. The post-'post-modern' period seems to be characterized by the assault of fear. Markets crash, addiction and obesity rates soar, nature suffers and we have lost confidence in nations and government. "Bothered and Bewildered" offers an analysis of our present dystopian situation that is both realistic and hopeful. Ann Morisy maps some potential responses and shows that the Christian faith, re-envisioned, can provide a resource on which to draw as we fumble for a way forward that is both imaginative and engaging.
"This is a brief book with deep roots. Its conclusions point to a way ahead...Every few minutes a new book is published about what the Church should be and do. Most soon sink without trace. We must hope that this book does better than that - and we must enact that hope by buying it, reading it, and passing it on." Church Times, January 2010
