Last week we introduced you to Carl Lentz and Bishop TD Jakes. We hope it was a helpful conversation in the light of recent events, over in the USA, as well as here in the UK.
In the light of the current climate and the Black Lives Matter Movement, we want tocontinue to point you in the direction of powerful and prophetic voices who can speak to us at this time.
Whether you prefer reading, or watching a movie, Just Mercy is a very significant contribution that helps highlight just how deeply-rooted racism really is. At the same time, it gives us hope that it doesn’t have to exist!
Desmond Tutu, the Nobel Peace Laureate, said of Bryan Stevenson, ‘that he is like a young Nelson Mandela! ‘We agree!
Just Mercy is a deeply moving, poignant and powerful book and film. It is the story of a brilliant black lawyer, who fights with courage and conviction, to get justice for all. It is simply the best insight into the failures of the administration of criminal justice that you will come across and it will make you gasp at the inhumanity of humankind!
Unfairness, racism and the justice system, are now major themes of our age. This book and film will help us navigate the season we are in and will help us in our response.
This book and film will shock you, perhaps create a righteous anger in you, but ultimately, it will inspire you and give you hope!
