We live in a forgetful age, and our collective memory loss can be dangerous. In this intriguing book, Charles Pinches examines the nature of true memory as it appears in family, nation, and church, the three structures that preside over memory’s territory. He takes a look at the power of memory in a fallen world, shining light on both the lies that disconnect us and the solution to the problem. Pinches deftly shows how memory is tied to community and ultimately to God. Pastors, lay leaders, and readers in the emerging church movement will appreciate this clear exploration of how memory works to make us human.
