Effective twenty-first-century preaching is prophetic when it addresses closing the income and wealth gap.
In the face of growing inequities in the United States and global economies, Rev. Dr. Joseph Evans, Dean of Morehouse School of Religion, has issued a clarion call to preachers to disturb the status quo and cause meaningful, thoughtful conversations about a species of biblical preaching that envisions economic justice as the ethical imperative for the twenty-first century, particularly for people of African descent. Written from a preacher's perspective, grounded in solid scholarship, this volume asserts an ethical imperative for economic justice and what this means for the twenty-first-century church and those who preach in prophetic pulpits around the world.
"This most pivotal, timely, and brilliant book announces an evolution in how reconciliation must be understood, preached, and practiced. In writing Reconciliation and Reparations, Dr. Joseph Evans powerfully advocates that biblical reconciliation requires a central focus on economic justice, reparations, and addressing the structures of white supremacy. This is a must-read for preachers, seminarians, and all faith leaders, because the United States and the world desperately need a generation that proclaims and embodies the healing power of reconciliation and reparations." Curtiss Paul DeYoung, CEO, Minnesota Council of Churches
