Episode 143 - J.W. Buck

J.W. (Josh) Buck is the Executive Director and one of the founders of Pax, a Christian organization designed to inspire and equip the next generation through slow, beautiful, Jesus-centered content created by people of color. While his first book is available for pre-order now (!), in this interview, we focused on his dissertation work on the Charleston Massacre. Josh challenges members of the white church in America to listen to the stories of their Christian brothers and sisters who have been affected by acts of violence and ongoing racism and to earnestly ask why these violent and racist acts and attitudes keep perpetuating.

Connect with Josh online @j.w.buck and engage with the work Pax is doing through their publication, the StoryArc.
