Dear White Christian: For Those Still Longing for Racial Reconciliation
– by Jennifer Harvey
The issue of race and the church is not simply an important issue. It may be one of the key issues of our time, and in our urban centers it may, indeed, be the issue. How we consider that issue matters.
In the church we have usually approached the issue of race from the side of reconciliation. Such is “the Christian” perspective. In this book Jennifer Harvey invites us to approach the question from the view of reparations.
In an overture to the PCUSA GA in 2016 that I helped to author, we proposed an aspect of dealing with the issue of race from calling for truth and reconciliation hearings. This move should be held up together with the perspective in this book.
