Gods, Gays, and Guns

Coming late August 2017--pre-order now and don't pay until it ships!

"Rev. Osagyefo Sekou is one of the most courageous and prophetic voices of our time." ―Cornel West, Princeton University

“Democracy and God have failed" captures the spirit of this provocative collection of essays. Arguing that religion must be used for the expansion of democracy, Sekou takes up gay marriage, economic justice, and social movements. Written in Parisian cafes, London’s ghettos, and the aftermath of Haiti’s earthquake and post-Katrina New Orleans, Gods, Gays, and Guns is a spiritual tour-de-force, revealing a crisis of faith in religion and democracy.



Also included in the special In Times Like These bundle: one copy each of Sekou's books urb

Ferguson and Faith

Ferguson and Faith

Foreword by Jim Wallis
Recommended in Religion News Service's 2015 Gift Suggestions

The shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, reignited a long-smoldering movement for justice, with many St. Louis-area clergy stepping up to support the emerging young leaders of today’s Civil Rights Movement. Seminary professor Leah Gunning Francis was among the activists, and her interviews with more than two dozen faith leaders and with the new movement’s organizers take us behind the scenes of the continuing protests. Ferguson and Faith demonstrates that being called to lead a faithful life can take us to places we never expected to go, with people who never expected us to join hands with them.

Stakes Is High

Stakes Is High

Foreword by Vashti Murphy McKenzie

"Michael W. Waters... is both blunt and lyrical as he meditates on police violence, racism, hip-hop, and the power of faith."―Sojourners

What happens when a people can take no more injustice rained down upon their sons and daughters?
When each new travesty echoes the cries of ancestors killed for the color of their skin? How do a people rediscover hope? And how do they use that new-found hope as momentum and strength for change?

In his powerful new book Stakes Is High, pastor, activist, and community leader Michael W. Waters blends hip-hop lyricism and social justice leadership, creating an urgent voice demanding that America listen to the suffering if it hopes to redeem its soul.

Nobody Cries When We Die

Nobody Cries When We Die

Foreword by Jimmy Santiago Baca

When the screams of innocents dying engulf you, how do you hear God’s voice? Will God and God’s people call you to life when your breath is strangled out of you?
For people of color living each day surrounded by violence, for whom survival is not a given, vocational discernment is more than “finding your purpose” — it’s a matter of life and death. Patrick Reyes shares his story of how his community saved him from gang life, abuse, and the economic and racial oppression that threatened to kill him before he ever reached adulthood.

Part of the FTE (Forum for Theological Exploration) Series.
