As Christians, what responsibility do we have if we know a crime has been committed? Specifically, what about a theft? Authors and pastors Duke Kwon and Gregory Thompson address those questions in their new book, Reparations: A Christian Call for Repentance and Repair. Pastor Kwon joined me for this episode of the podcast to talk about the book and why he and his co-author, neither of whom are African Americans, believe this is a topic important for all of the church. The American story, at its heart, includes the theft of truth, wealth, and power from the African American community. It is time to for the rest of the Christian community to talk about that truth and what we need to do about it.
