Review of Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove's
Revolution of Values:
Reclaiming Public Faith for the Common Good
National Catholic Reporter, July 2020
"The book may detail history, but it is not a history book. Wilson-Hartgrove is making an appeal ahead of the 2020 election, especially for white Christians, to assess critically abuses of faith that crush the poor. But as he makes clear, finding a better way to read the Bible in public life is a communal activity. The questions Wilson-Hartgrove leaves us with are with whom will we read the Bible and whose perspective will we prioritize? For Catholics, this will involve reexamining how some members of our hierarchy have distorted the church's tradition, too."
