Raging with Compassion by John Swinton
Book DescriptionIn "Raging with Compassion", Swinton argues for a practical theodicy, one embodied in the life and practices of the Christian community. This practicality does not seek to provide an explanation for the existence of evil, but rather presents ways in which evil and suffering can be resisted and transformed. This, he insists, will enable Christians to live faithfully with unanswered questions as they await God's redemption of the whole creation. Swinton explores essential practices of redemption - lament, forgiveness, thoughtfulness, hospitality, and friendship - drawing out their implications for the faithful resistance of evil. Enhanced by case studies from current events and by Swinton's own experience as a pastor and mental health nurse, "Raging with Compassion" seeks to inspire fresh Christian responses and modes of practice in our broken, fallen world.

Living Well and Dying Faithfully, Paperback (December 2009)
Living Well and Dying Faithfully explores how Christian practices love, prayer, lament, compassion, and so on can contribute to the process of dying well. Working on the premise that one dies the way one lives, the book is unique in its constructive dialogue between theology and medicine as offering two complementary modes of care."
Theology, Disability and the New Genetics, Hardback (June 2007)» View all books by John Swinton
Taking a Christian viewpoint, this book explores and challenges our concept of disability. It seeks to explore the question: does our current attitude toward the use of genetic technologies in contemporary practice risk a slide into social habits which are implicitly evil and destructive of the humanness of our society?
