It’s a strange form of Christianity that would deny that perpetrators of evil can be redeemed.
The Bellowing of Cain was written primarily to those who, like Cain, have made horrible life-wrecking decisions and secondarily to those who have a calling to live and work with them. It is written by a fellow traveler who understands what it means to destroy one’s life…for he once did so.
In the culture of disposable people, we need a book like The Bellowing of Cain to teach us about the unique journey taken by people with such baggage—baggage like shame, loss, and remorse. Such luggage is heavy and bends the back of those who must carry it, and they often walk alone. Who will speak for them?
