From the publisher:
“Lenny Duncan is the unlikeliest of pastors. Formerly incarcerated, he is now a black preacher in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Shifting demographics and shrinking congregations make all the headlines, but Duncan sees something else at work–drawing a direct line between the church’s lack of diversity and the church’s lack of vitality.
“Part manifesto, part confession, and all love letter, Dear Church offers a bold new vision for the future of Duncan’s denomination and the broader mainline Christian community of faith. Dear Church rejects the narrative of church decline and calls everyone–leaders and laity alike–to the front lines of the church’s renewal through racial equality and justice. Duncan gives a blueprint for the way forward and urges us to follow in the revolutionary path of Jesus.”
