Radical Welcome: Embracing God, The Other, and the Spirit of Transformation

Church Publishing, Inc.

An inspirational and practical guide to embracing those who are often marginalized into a welcoming, inclusive Christian community.
 
For two years, Stephanie Spellers conducted over two hundred interviews with people in urban, suburban, and rural congregations around the United States to find out how they dealt with welcoming those across lines of race and ethnicity, generation, sexual orientation, and class privilege.
 
Here she presents her findings and lays out the theological underpinnings of tackling fears head-on in order to accept change as a part of community life. By modeling the most loving and effective ways to embrace marginalized individuals and groups within a church, denomination, or society, Radical Welcome aims to create a place of compassionate inclusivity where people of all kinds can feel like they belong.
