REPARATIONS A Christian Call for Repentance and Repair Duke L. Kwon and Gregory Thompson

Reparations explores the church’s responsibility for the deep racial broken- ness at the heart of American culture, investigates the Bible’s call to repair it, and offers a vision for the work of reparation at the local level.

“ Reparations is a book for this moment. A timely call for reparations and the dignity of all people.” —JEMAR TISBY, CEO of The Witness Inc.; author of the bestselling book The Color of Compromise “I hope every American Christian leader—especially White Christian leaders—will read this book.” —TISH HARRISON WARREN, Anglican priest; author of Liturgy of the Ordinary and Prayer in the Night DUKE L. KWON (MDiv, ThM, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) is the lead pastor at Grace Meridian Hill in Washington, DC. He is active in conversations on race, equity, and racial repair in the American church and lectures on these topics around the country.

THE MAKING OF BIBLICAL WOMANHOOD How the Subjugation of Women Became Gospel Truth Beth Allison Barr Historian Beth Allison Barr shows that “biblical womanhood” isn’t biblical but arose from a series of clearly definable historical moments. She presents a better way forward for the contemporary church. “This fervent, bold, and sweeping history of Christianity and patri- archy is an absolute game changer. Any future debates will need to reckon with Barr’s contention that the subjugation of women has nothing to do with gospel truth.” —KRISTIN KOBES DU MEZ, Calvin University; author of Jesus and John Wayne “Barr’s careful historical examples drawn especially from medieval history hold together a brilliant, thunderous narrative that untells the complementarian narrative. I could not put this book down.” —SCOT M c KNIGHT, Northern Seminary
