Jonathan, who lives in Durh am, talks about the coming conversation: “Since this book c ame out in the Spring, I’ve been facilitating conversations around the country about how america’s history of white supremacy has compromised Christianity, and how, at the s ame time, the faith of Jesus has always challenged racial injustice. I’m looking forward to this conversation because I’ve seen how it can bring healing and a fresh vitality to the gospel message, especially for people who are ready to face the truth about our present moral crisis in america.
