Dave Andrews's 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 Andrews'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 community with marginalized and disadvantaged groups of people. The prophetical part explores Andrews'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 Andrews'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.
