Revolution of Values
Reclaiming Public Faith for the Common Good
Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove’s REVOLUTION OF VALUES: RECLAIMING PUBLIC FAITH FOR THE COMMON GOOD (InterVarsity Press), in which the author explores how religious culture wars have misrepresented Christianity at the expense of the poor, and how listening to marginalized communities can help us hear God's call to love and justice in the world.
Jonathan has served as a scribe for the moral movement in America today. In Revolution of Values, he tells the truth about how the Bible was hijacked by the religious right. But more importantly, he highlights the people who are challenging a false moral narrative and shows us how faith can revive the heart and soul of this democracy.

Facing the Darkness of Your Fears to Experience the Light

Luke shows us a way through our fears toward the gift of our truest self.
