"White china" is Molly Wolf’s personal shorthand for the kind of religious language and ideas that often seem abstract and daunting. Those of us who don’t know how to break the code of words like hermeneutics are left to struggle in a landscape of abstraction and purity, intimidated and uncomfortable with our ability to handle them. We might mispronounce the words or use them wrongly, and then what would people think of us? They’re pure like white china; we might drop and break them or get them dirty. And they certainly aren’t something we can consume–who can eat china? In this beautifully written collection, Molly Wolf serves up her unique brand of what she calls God-Talk. She takes the language of Christian faith and religion, sets it in the context of her keen observations of everyday experience, and unpacks it, opening it up to make it real and close up and important. Revel in Wolf’s juicy metaphors and rejoice in the fact that she serves up a feast for all those who hunger to eat.
