Tom Oord presents a theology for the oppressed, the injured, the survivor who can be re-traumatized by theologies that insist their suffering is ordained. I have seen many of these people turn away from God because bad theology made them believe leaving was the only way they could heal. Oord offers another option, introducing the wounded to a God who co-labors with, rather than controls, humankind, working collaboratively with us to end human suffering.
