Ross Thompson has served for 20 years as an Anglican priest and lectured in theology and spirituality. He is the author of several well-acclaimed books on Christian spirituality.
Wounded Wisdom is both an accessible text and a significant contribution to the dialogue between theology and psychology. The academic discussion is clear and wide-ranging , while the author's own poetry, together with the stories he has uncovered, are unafraid to tap into violent emotion. Readers will be intrigued by his synthesis of Buddhism ('a wave-like approach') and Christianity ('a more focused, particle-like' description). This is a fine exemplar of the burgeoning genre of practical theology - well-informed, personally engaged and committed to Love's lessons, wherever they are found.
