Read in April, 2008

Author Charles Marsh came to speak at our school in February, and a group of campus ministry people had the opportunity to have dinner with him beforehand. I liked him. And he autographed my book.

As for the The Beloved Community itself: it is a must-read for Christians, especially Christians in the American South, and anyone who cares about the history of civil rights--its achievements and failures--in the United States.

(A friend remarked: "I grew up a Christian in the South. Why didn't I know any of this happened?")
