Silence Is Not the Answer

IN THIS AGE OF CONFUSION, FEAR, AND CONFLICT, SPEAKING UP IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER

If you’ve ever felt like you don’t have enough information about an issue, that you should wait to see what others do first, or that your voice won’t make a difference, you’re not alone.

Silence Is Not the Answer is a collection of prophetic voices urging us to wake up, notice what is happening, and take a stand.

The book offers viewpoints from a variety of writers who call us to make our voices heard on critical justice issues. Walter Brueggemann, Bishop Herbert Chilstrom, Christine M. Smith, Larry Rasmussen, Jim Wallis, and others encourage us to break the silence—not by shouting down others but by starting a real conversation.

Here’s your chance to speak up, make better choices, and make your voice heard. Even one voice can start an avalanche of change.

We need to read and listen and then speak out for causes that we think are important.

“Johnson has assembled a cast of writing witnesses who. . . offer crisp, terse testimony to the urgency of gospel justice concerning a range of current issues.”
Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary
