"The stories told in this book are true stories about people who refuse to separate economics from community. From loving one's neighbour as oneself. And from caring about the earth under one's feet. These days, the movement supported by people who want to build a neighbourly economy is often called 'community economic development'. (The same idea gets different names at different moments; in my father's youth, it was called 'the co-operative movement'.)" Intro. p. 3-4.

The author contemplates his reaction to the news of the killing of fourteen women in the December 1994 Montreal Massacre. He describes his horror, shock and then anger, an anger he is reluctant to admit or share. "The women's movement has made the expression of such anger nearly impossible for men. Every day I hear women expressing their righteous anger against the 'system'. And every day I hear men -- sensitive men -- quietly agreeing with the women's analysis and carrying away an ever-increasing burden of guilt, that will fester into anger, and which we can never talk about because we know it's true that men have oppressed women". "Women express their anger, talk about their 'rage'. As they did extensively after the Montreal killings. Men deny their anger. And it comes out in family violence, or in extreme cases, in killings like in Montreal. We have to remember that Christ offered us the possibility of repentance and forgiveness. But before we can repent, we need to know our sin".
