An invitation to solidarity and liberation for us all
Stephanie Spellers serves as Presiding Bishop Michael Curry's Canon for Evangelism, Reconciliation, and Creation, helping Episcopalians to share good news and cross boundaries as part of the Jesus Movement. A former church planter and seminary faculty member, she is the author of Radical Welcome: Embracing God, The Other and the Spirit of Transformation. She lives in New York City.
"If you are looking at the landscape of the church and
wondering, 'How'd we get here?' and what's next, I invite you to
board Rev. Spellers's plane and take in the big picture with her.
Take in the history, the theology, the pain, the beauty, and the
hope that her view from thirty thousand feet offers. When she lands
the plane, you'll realize-there's simply no better guide out
-Nadia Bolz-Weber, author"Stephanie Spellers draws our attention to the unraveling of white Christianity in the face of contextual diversity and Jesus's cross. She invites her readers to stop negotiating with the past and to realize that love is not maintaining and protecting community but the very cracking open at the heart of community."
-C. Andrew Doyle, IX Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Texas "In a moment when structures and patterns in the church's life are being deeply disrupted, this book is a loving, passionate invitation to repent, reimagine, and renew. Stephanie Spellers not only names hard truths but also and even more importantly offers hope and promise in Jesus's way of love."
