    First published in —and reissued here with a feisty new introductory essay—The Promise of Paradox launched Parker J. Palmer’s career as an author and his ongoing exploration of the contradictions that vex and enrich our lives. In this probing and heartfelt book, the distinguished writer, teacher, and activist examines some of the challenging questions at the core of Christian.   But in Christianity, according to the book of Galatians, everything created by God is pure and clean. Man has dominion over them, and as such, can kill and eat them.
