Join Dave Andrews for the launch of his new book To Right Every Wrong: The Making And Unmaking Of One Improbable Minor Prophet.
Dave Andrews’ latest book, To Right Every Wrong, is the last in the Dave Andrews Legacy Series. It is a funny, sad, brutally honest retrospective, reflecting on what it has meant for him and his family to seek to live a lifetime dedicated to love and justice. The reflections in this book, subtitled The Making And Unmaking Of One Improbable Minor Prophet, come in three parts — the personal, the prophetical and the paradoxical. The personal part explores Dave’s experience of the radical, compassionate spirituality that he shares with wife, Angie, and which has shaped their way of life as a family in a community with marginalized and disadvantaged groups of people. The prophetical part explores Dave’s embrace of the “strange”, “crazy”, “improbable” call he felt to be a prophet, which he has sought to flesh out in classic prophetic roles – as an interrogator, a protester, a practitioner and an inspirator – in contemporary prophetic contexts characterized by poverty and violence. The paradoxical part explores Dave’s making and unmaking as a minor prophet, critically constructing and deconstructing the more confrontational aspects of the prophetic roles he has played in order to be able to practice more sensitive pastoral care.
Dave Andrews, his wife Ange, and their family, have lived in communities with marginalised groups of people in India and Australia for nearly fifty years. Dave and Ange and friends started Aashiana, Sahara, and Sharan, working with slum dwellers, sex workers, drug addicts, and people with HIV/AIDS in India; and they are now part of the Waiters Union, working alongside Aboriginals, refugees and people with disabilities in Australia. Dave is interested in radical spirituality, intentional community and the dynamics of personal and social transformation. He is the author of twenty books, including Christi-Anarchy, Not Religion, But Love, A Divine Society and The Jihad Of Jesus. Dave is a trainer for Community Praxis Cooperative; and elder emeritus for Servants to Asia’s Urban Poor.
