Description

For many people of faith, the election of Donald Trump represents not just a political crisis—a threat to our republic and a danger for the entire world—but also a confessional crisis, a moment that calls into question the deepest meaning of our religious claims and values.

Reflections by notable religious scholars, ministers, and activists address this crisis. With chapters treating issues of gender, race, disability, LGBT justice, immigration, the environment, peace, and poverty, the contributors seek to name our situation and to set forth an agenda for faith and resistance.

Contributors include Susan Thistlethwaite, Amir Hussain, David Gushee, Miguel Diaz, Kelly Brown Douglas, Christiana Zenner, Sister Simone Campbell, Kwok Pui-lan, George “Tink” Tinker, and Rabbi Steven Greenberg.
