How do we overcome polarization in American society? How do we advocate for justice when one side won't listen to the other and cycles of outrage escalate?
These questions have been pressing for years, but the events of January 6, 2021, and the emergence of a vocal, virulent Christian nationalism have made it even more urgent that we find a way forward.
For Pamela Cooper-White the path lies in balancing the pastoral and the prophetic. Though often difficult, our calling to fight for justice and our duty to love our neighbor must be held together. We cannot abandon one in pursuit of the other. In fact, the two can only work when they work together.
By turns hopeful and realistic, Cooper-White looks deeply at the roots of our current situation and brings together two themes in the pursuit of one goal: confronting our divided nation and pursuing justice for all.
