The Regulator Bookshop welcomes Jonathan Wilson-Hargrove for a reading and signing in celebration of the launch of his new book, Revolution of Values: Reclaiming Public Faith for the Common Good.
In Revolution of Values, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove 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. He highlights people on the frontlines of issues ranging from immigration policy and voting rights to women's rights and environmental stewardship. Through these narratives, we encounter a recovery of values that upholds the dignity of all people. Rediscover hope for faithful public witness that serves the common good.
