Hannah is a Red; her crime is murder. In seeking a path to safety in an alien and hostile world, Hannah unknowingly embarks on a path of self-discovery that forces her to question the values she once held true and the righteousness of a country that politicizes faith.

Willow Wilton dreamed of traveling the world, but at age twenty-one and being illiterate, a high school dropout, and coming from a very poor family, that dream was not likely to happen in this lifetime. She had never been outside of Oakwood. Her passion to travel fueled her rich imagination with dreams of hosting a travel show. She saw herself in foreign lands, talking to a worldwide audience. Cecil, Willow’s oldest brother, thought he was clever to create an excuse to visit Baby at her new apartment one night. He started a fight to distract her, and without her realizing it, he had her extra apartment key in his pocket. The next day, Cecil found twenty-dollar bills under Baby’s mattress in her old room at home. He was not searching for money, but there it was. He filled three black garbage bags. It was her savings from three years of part-time work. He thought in some way that she owed him this money. After all, he was her teacher. He was the one who needed to talk some sense into her. She was a dreamer who thought she could travel; she didn’t even own a car. Cecil often advised her, “You need to get married and have some kids. You don’t need to dream about traveling all over the world.” Will Willow have the strength to battle her older brother? Can she keep going toward her dream while he is blocking her? The harder she tries to move toward her goal, the stronger he becomes. Maybe he is right. Maybe she should be like Ma.

An Urgent Call for Christians in America to Confront Racism and Injustice

“Between the Christianity of this land, and the Christianity of Christ, I recognize the widest possible difference.” –Frederick Douglass, 1845 The prophets of old were not easy to listen to because they did not flatter. They did not cajole. They spoke hard words that often chafed and unsettled their listeners. Like the Old Testament prophets, and more recent prophetic voices like Frederick Douglass, Dr. Eric Mason calls the evangelical church to a much-needed reckoning. In a time when many feel confused, complacent, or even angry, he challenges the church to: Be Aware – to understand that the issue of justice is not a black issue, it’s a kingdom issue. To learn how the history of racism in America and in the church has tainted our witness to a watching world. Be Redemptive – to grieve and lament what we have lost and to regain our prophetic voice, calling the church to remember our gospel imperative to promote justice and mercy. Be Active – to move beyond polite, safe conversations about reconciliation and begin to set things aright for our soon-coming King, who will be looking for a WOKE CHURCH.
