Book Studies

Book Studies at Redeemer

We talk about books here.

Due to COVID-19, all of our book studies are online via Zoom.

Book Discussion with Pastor Jonathan

Join Pastor Jonathan on Tuesdays from 5:00 – 6:00 pm.  The current book selection is Might from the Margins: The Gospel’s Power to Turn the Tables on Injustice by Dennis Edwards.


The next book the group with discuss is Passionate for Justice: Ida B. Wells as Prophet for Our Time by Catherine Meeks and Nibs Stroupe.

“The authors are an African-American woman and a child of white supremacy. Both have dedicated themselves to working, writing, and developing ministries oriented toward justice, equity, and mercy.

Ida B. Wells was a powerful churchwoman and witness for justice and equity from 1878 to 1931. Born enslaved, her witness flowed through the struggles for justice in her lifetime, especially in the intersections of African Americans, women, and those who were poor. Her life is a profound witness for faith-based work of visionary power, resistance, and resilience for today’s world, when the forces of injustice stand in opposition to progress.”

This book study is open to anyone who is interested. If you have any questions, please email Pr Jonathan.

Discussion begins April 6, 2021
