BJC Book Club: Be part of the conversation

Go deeper on topics related to preserving faith freedom for all with BJC’s book club. Together, we read through one book at a time, setting a goal of certain chapters each week. We’ll have weekly Zoom meetings in small groups to discuss questions based on the reading. At the end of each book, we’ll host a live conversation with the author to share additional thoughts and ideas for action as we work to make sure freedom is protected for everyone.

Book reading and discussion: September 9 – September 30, 2020
Sessions meet each Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time, and we will have a wrap-up discussion with the author after the conclusion of the book club.

Watch the Facebook Live introduction of the book club with BJC Executive Director Amanda Tyler and Director of Education Charles Watson Jr.

The Color of Compromise is both enlightening and compelling, telling a history we either ignore or just don’t know. Equal parts painful and inspirational, it details how the American church has helped create and maintain racist ideas and practices. You will be guided in thinking through concrete solutions for improved race relations and a racially inclusive church.

Preview: Listen to Jemar Tisby on the BJC Podcast series on the dangers of Christian nationalism.
