Book Launch: “The False White Gospel,” with author Jim Wallis

Join us on April 2nd at 7:00 PM in the Nave and online for the book launch of “The False White Gospel: Rejecting Christian Nationalism, Reclaiming True Faith, and Re-founding Democracy” by Jim Wallis. This groundbreaking work challenges the prevalent issue of Christian Nationalism and advocates for embracing authentic faith to restore democracy.

Through a compelling narrative, Wallis confronts the distorted gospel perpetuating white supremacy and autocracy, urging readers to reassess their beliefs. This message extends beyond Christianity, resonating with all faith traditions and even those without religious affiliations.

Highlighting six pivotal texts central to biblical faith, Wallis emphasizes the importance of cultivating a civic faith rooted in love and healing. This discourse advocates for a politics of neighborly love, crucial for shaping a just and inclusive society.

Join us in this transformative journey towards collective liberation and the pursuit of truth, echoing the timeless wisdom of Jesus: “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
