About-

An invitation to reclaim our worth as persons created in the image of God.

Both scholarly and personal, Curtiss Paul DeYoung's profound public journey has intersected again and again with social realities of injustice and alienation. He graciously shares here his compelling story of hope and reconciliation. New insights and new challenges arise as he encounters Desmond Tutu, Malaak Shabazz, Rabbi Menachem Froman, Sojourner Truth, Samuel Ruiz Garcia, Lani Guinier, Cain Hope Felder, James Earl Massey, Mary McLeod Bethune, Ronald Takaki, Samuel Hines, Howard Thurman, and many others. The hallmarks of DeYoung's engaging narrative are spiritual transformation, innovative leadership, and creative courage.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Homecoming is an invitation on a literal journey from Harlem to Palestine, to places of pain, suffering, struggle, and life-giving hope. It is also a spiritual journey, toward places of justice and peace and healing. This is a beautiful, captivating, humbling book, alive with the authenticity of a person disturbed by the state of our world, entirely at home in global struggles for justice and at peace with himself."
--Allan Aubrey Boesak, Desmond Tutu Chair of Peace, Global Justice and Reconciliation Studies at Christian Theological Seminary and Butler University
