Item #35815 Dwelling in the Promised Land as a Stranger. Scott Abbott.

Dwelling in the Promised Land as a Stranger

BCC Press, 2022. Paperback. 257pp. "In these essays, Scott Abbott has sketched his personal odyssey. A boy from a Four-Corners oil town went away to college, became an ascendant academic, then pivoted, poignantly. A stirring in his deep parts pointed him toward the transcendent prospect of a consummate community, lustrous in its interweaving of humane quest with tokens of godliness. Eventually, contesting the interweave brought embroilment and sundering, an uneasy reality to which Professor Abbott has borne witness in ways heartrending and cautionary."
—Hal Miller, Jr.
Professor, Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience, BYU
