SUMMARY: A technical, dense read that covers many common points of contention Christians have with the Black Lives Matter movement. Instead of rejecting the Black Lives Matter movement Christians should take the opportunity to reflect and engage with nuance in the movement.
KEY QUOTE: “The church must recover its revolutionary witness that God in Christ has come to overthrow every earthly kingdom. Christians should never be surprised to find that the world and church are in need of repentance and reform. God’s restorative action is needed every day in every way. The church should accordingly welcome the witness of #BLM and other social movements that put a spotlight on truths the church has forgotten, neglected and, in some cases, outright denied.”
