- Reparations: A Critical, Theological Review by Kevin DeYoung. From the website:
Reparations: A Christian Call for Repentance and Renewal (Brazos Press) is a new book by Duke Kwon, a PCA pastor in Washington, DC, and Greg Thompson, a former PCA pastor (previously serving a church in Charlottesville, Virginia) who now leads a number of initiatives related to race and racism in America. Reparations is a bold work, calling for nothing less than for the language of White supremacy and reparations to be “fixed in the church’s imagination and fundamental to its vocation” (28). In simple terms, the problem is White supremacy, and the answer is reparations—restitution for what has been taken and restoration unto wholeness. Reparations is the cry of the ages and the call of the church (207).
- The PCA General Assembly is quickly approaching. Here is the latest overture (with commentary from Jim Shaw) from Chesapeake Presbytery requesting a study committee on the subject of “white supremacy.”
- Providence by W.G.T Shedd.
