Sounding the Trumpet: How Churches Can Answer God’s Call to Justice
J. Alfred Smith, Sr., D. Min. and Alvin C. Bernstine, D.Min.
In these times of widespread terrorism, environmental degradation, and unchecked crime, the time is ripe for the church to blow the trumpet to wake up an apathetic public about to be destroyed by social alienation, hedonistic materialism, nihilistic emptiness, and jingoistic militarism. This cohort is designed to empower churches to be true to themselves and to their mission by answering God’s call to justice. With academic rigor and prayerful reflection, cohort members will equip themselves to a ministry that will save lives and redeem communities with a ministry that harmonizes love, power, and justice.
