Now open for enrollment, Belmont University Professor Steve Guthrie leads a reading group for John M. Perkins’ powerful book Let Justice Roll Down. Students will join one another in reading and discussion.
The book group, which includes Zoom chats every Thursday night at 7:30pm, begins this coming Monday, August 3 and continues through August 28. You are welcome to join at any time. The discussions will be archived, and the forums will be open indefinitely for new registrants to continue reading and discussing the book.
Let Justice Roll Down is available in the Rabbit Room Store. No purchase necessary to join the reading group.
About the Book
His brother died in his arms, shot by a deputy marshall. He was beaten and tortured by the sheriff and state police. But through it all he returned good for evil, love for hate, progress for prejudice, and brought hope to black and white alike.
The story of John Perkins is no ordinary story. Rather, it is a gripping portrayal of what happens when faith thrusts a person into the midst of a struggle against racism, oppression, and injustice. It is about the costs of discipleship—the jailings, the floggings, the despair, the sacrifice. And it is about the transforming work of faith that allowed John to respond to such overwhelming indignities with miraculous compassion, vision, and hope.
