Read and hear: recommendations from Presbyterian friends, part 2

January 24, 2017 by Lee Hinson-Hasty

This is the second of two blog posts covering the topic of what people are reading or recommend these days.

It started with a question I posed on my Facebook page: What are you reading or recommend be read to survive and, even more, understand what’s going on today politically, economically, racially, and theologically?

I received a tremendous number of responses from all across the country, from scholars, theologians, justice workers and friends. I received so many responses I decided to divide it into two blog posts. You can read the first one here.

I’d like to add to my previous thoughts that “The Cross and the Lynching Tree” by James Cone, a professor and theologian at Union Seminary (New York) is so important in these days, and I recommend it to you.

Continued below is the list. Read and hear!

Thanks to everyone who contributed! Keep reading.
