Full Product Description
Evangelical Christianity in America has a reputation for political self-interest and hurtful attitudes toward homosexuals, women, minorities, followers of different religions and others outside its fold. Though sometimes unfair, sadly, this reputation is too often deserved.
In Forgive Us, four evangelical leaders in the reconciliation and justice movements confess the churchs public failings and call on fellow believers to reengage the surrounding culture in a new and better way. Using biblical examples from Psalm 51 to the teachings of Jesus to the prayers of Nehemiah, Forgive Us reveals that confession is the proper biblical response when Gods people have injured others and turned their backs on Gods ways.
Each chapter of Forgive Us provides accurate and compelling histories of some of the American churchs greatest shortcomings followed by theological reflections and appropriate words of confession and repentance.
Passionate and purposeful, Forgive Us will challenge evangelical readers and issue a heart-felt request to the surrounding culture for forgiveness and a new beginning.
Contributors are Mae-Elise Cannon, Lisa Sharon Harper, Troy Jackson and Soong-Chan Rah.
