Reconciling All Things: A Christian Vision for Justice, Peace and Healing
Emmanuel Katongole and Chris Rice, co-founders of the Center for Reconciliation at Duke Divinity School, cast a comprehensive vision for reconciliation that is biblical, transformative, holistic and global. They draw on the resources of the Christian story, including their own individual experiences in Uganda and Mississippi, to bring solid, theological reflection to bear on the work of reconciling individuals, groups and societies.
Katongole and Rice address what it means to pursue hope in areas of brokenness, including the family, the city, the poor, the disabled. Christianity and Islam, racial and ethnic divisions, violent conflicts, and the environment. [They] seek to offer a fresh and distinctive vision for reconciliation as God's mission and a journey toward God's new creation in Christ. The book will be used in this year's Pre-College Conference for Faculty, and is recommended as well to CIS attendees.
