Will Campbell - what's worth reading

A much delayed introduction to Will Campbell's writings. Wikipedia has a comprehensive list of his
published works.

There are now a couple of anthologies of his theological works available:
Writings on Reconciliation and Resistance By Will D. Campbell Edited by Richard C. Goode (Cascade Books) and Crashing the Idols The Vocation of Will D. Campbell (and any other Christian for that matter) By Will D. Campbell, Richard C. Goode  (Cascade Books)

I am not familiar with most of those listed but there are a few that I have read that have moved me profoundly particularly his memoirs:

Will Campbell has been a subversive presence continuing to subvert religious and political certainties in word and action out of a deep conviction that we are called by God's to be reconciled and that that reconciling grace has little to do with maintaining respectability and alignment with the powers that be.
