In Journey to Sodom, the Reverend Catherine Ferrari uncovers small threads of truth that readers can use to briefly explain differences related to customs, languages and word usage which have guided the traditional theological interpretation.
Although touching on one of the most controversial issues in the Bible, Journey to Sodom does not intend to enter the theological debate as to whether the sin of Sodom is homosexuality or hospitality. The purpose of this book is to help readers understand how the story of Sodom has a more universal message rather than the "moral" perspective that has caused harm.
Therefore, readers will discover how foreigners learn to interact with one another; how an individual influences a family to heed the call of a strange God; and how a small Hebrew tribe becomes neighbors with the residents of a distant land, Canaan.
Readers will also learn the significance of the strangers within the story of Sodom and the relevance of the strangers’ social, economic and political status. By doing so, Journey to Sodom will demonstrate how years of misinterpretation has hindered humankind’s spiritual, intellectual, and psychological growth.
