About-

Rather than settling for cheap shortcuts to harmony, Curtiss Paul DeYoung invites us to embrace a costly reconciliation. Reconciliation: God’s Timeless Call to Justice, Healing, and Transformation describes what is essential for engaging in the process of costly reconciliation: taking responsibility, seeking forgiveness, repairing the wrong, healing the soul, and creating new ways of relating. Chapters close with a set of study-guide questions for readers who seek a concise, lay-oriented articulation of the biblical mandate for reconciliation across racial, gender, and class lines. This is the 2019 reprint edition of Reconciliation: Our Greatest Challenge—Our Only Hope.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“DeYoung cuts no corners when it comes to stating the staggering cost of quality relationships, yet he makes the beauty of biblical reconciliation so appealing that the sacrifice will seem a small price to be paid for the enriching arrangement to which the gospel calls us.”

--James A. Forbes Jr., Senior Minister Emeritus, The Riverside Church

“In Reconciliation, Curtiss DeYoung offers us a moral guide and practical road map through this difficult, painful, and ultimately liberating process called reconciliation. This is a book that should be read by everyone who wants to build bridges across our great divides—which should be all of us.”

--Jim Wallis, President, Sojourners

“For insights on the social outworking of the reconciliation concern, note especially Howard Thurman’s Disciplines of the Spirit and Curtiss Paul DeYoung’s Reconciliation. Thurman offers his wise counsel about how to develop as a reconciling person. DeYoung offers counsel on taking responsibility for the polarization that exists in order to take action to shape the necessary and God-willed harmony.”

--James Earl Massey, Dean Emeritus, Anderson University School of Theology and Tuskegee University Chapel
