Wharenui: House of Hope is about the creation of communities that are both hopeful and inclusive. With the Maori meeting house (Wharenui) as basic model, and circling around five key words, the book explores resurrection as an open-ended process within history that has potential for now. Applied to any space whatsoever – home, workplace, club, political party, church, sports club – we’re talking about Christ-inspired open spaces for life: houses of hope, rather than places of horror. At a time of great human suffering, we need access to a fullness of life which also puts us in solidarity with the hopes and aspirations of people everywhere. If you’re prepared to do the hard yards to make such a vision real, this book is for you!
