Join host Greg Thompson in February 2024 as we discuss Michael Rhodes’ new book, Just Discipleship: Biblical Justice in an Unjust World.
Grounded in biblical theology, virtue ethics, and his own experiences, Rhodes shows that justice is central to the Bible, central to Jesus, and central to authentic Christian discipleship. Justice stands at the heart of Scripture. Following Jesus demands that we become just disciples in an unjust world.

Our Book Study is an informal community of readers led by Center Advisory Board member Gregory Thompson or Peace Talks Host Vanessa Sadler.
We gather around a book we have selected for its relevance to the Center’s focus on growing in love of God, neighbor, and self. Our studies last anywhere from four to eight weeks, depending on the book. We connect once a week on Zoom for 90 minutes, typically in the evening. Many of our members also participate in the Center Community Group, a more general space for connection and peer-based learning.
