Becoming Brave: Finding Courage to Pursue Racial Justice
Reconciliation is not true reconciliation without justice! Brenda Salter McNeil has come to this conviction as she has led the church in pursuing reconciliation efforts over the past three decades. McNeil calls the church to repair the old reconciliation paradigm by moving beyond individual racism to address systemic injustice, both historical and present. It’s time for the church to go beyond individual reconciliation and “heart change” and to boldly mature in its response to racial division.
Roadmap to Reconciliation 2.0: Moving Communities into Unity, Wholeness and Justice
We can see the injustice and inequality in our lives and in the world. We are ready to rise up. But how, exactly, do we do this? How does one reconcile? What we need is a clear sense of direction. Based on her extensive consulting experience with churches, colleges and organizations, Rev. Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil has created a roadmap to show us the way. She guides us through the common topics of discussion and past the bumpy social terrain and political boundaries that will arise.
A Credible Witness: Reflections on Power, Evangelism, and Race
Meet Jesus and Sam.
Evangelist and teacher Brenda Salter McNeil thinks evangelism that only introduces people to Jesus is incomplete. The picture is much larger than that, she claims: Christ's death and resurrection reconcile us to God and to each other across gender, race and social lines.
The Heart of Racial Justice: How Soul Change Leads to Social Change
I believe that at the heart of racial and ethnic injustice there is an evil that can only be rooted out by spiritual power. As Christians, we must become more aware of the spiritual realities around us and how to access the presence and power of God through prayer. As we do this, we increase our effectiveness as one body of believers and regain our ability to facilitate social change around the world.
