About-

A critical presidential election looms before us. Whether you love Donald Trump or despise him, most everyone agrees that he masterfully keeps people and the country off-balance. His acerbic rhetoric, divisive priorities, and erratic leadership foster further division and widespread anxiety. That causes some Americans to go in search of any candidate who can defeat him in the upcoming election. For others, though, Trump’s brash style, anti-establishment platform, hardline policies, and “Make America Great Again” promises are reasons to support him and work enthusiastically for his reelection.

Letters to the Church seeks to help compassionate, thoughtful Christians regain our bearings and find our voice and courage for honest, hopeful conversations in this de-centering era of Trump. These conversations will help recenter the church for faithful discernment, courageous imagination, and constructive engagement in the broader community. By doing so, the church can renew its own life and model what conversation and participation can look like in a time otherwise characterized by extremism, suspicion, fear, and gridlock.

Geared for use by both individuals and church study groups, the letters are organized into three sections: “What We are Experiencing Now,” “What We Hope For,” and “What We are Called To.”

Endorsements & Reviews-

“William Kincaid has written a must-read for faith leaders facing the challenges of the 2020 election by urging the church to look beyond the obvious partisan divide and see the God factor in our decisions. Read this book and be empowered to do so.”

—Anne Henning Byfield, Bishop, AME Church



“In Letters to the Church, Bill Kincaid invites us to restore broken relationships caused by political and ideological divisions. Let all agents of reconciliation take note: this book should be in your tool belt.”

—John C. Dorhauer, General Minister and President, United Church of Christ



“Bill Kincaid’s Letters to the Church is a balm to any whose soul is parched and thirsty in this time of uncertainty. The church will find much grace herein.”

—Frank A. Thomas, Director of PhD Program in African American Preaching and Sacred Rhetoric, Christian Theological Seminary



“It’s time to speak up and engage! Thoughtful, compassionate Christians cannot be silent or sidelined during the most critical presidential election in our history. Kincaid describes what we are experiencing and, more importantly, how our vocation as the church can contribute to our common good.”

—Doug Pagitt, Executive Director, Vote Common Good
