Duty as delight and desire -- I will do it ... but you go -- Mission as hope in action -- The proclamation of resurrection in the Old Testament -- The commandments and liberated, liberating bonding -- Truth-telling as subversive obedience -- Truth-telling comfort -- "Until" ... endlessly enacted, now urgent.
Summary: "Those who serve as truth-tellers in the church, like those who listen to the truth-telling in the church, are a mix of yearning and fearfulness, of receptiveness and collusion. In the end, the work of truth-telling is not to offer a new package of certitudes that displaces old certitudes. This truth to be uttered and acted, rather, is the enactment and conveyance of this Person who is truth, so that truth comes as bodily fidelity that stays reliably present to the pain of the world."--Pref.
