Our October Book Club selection is Who Stole My Bible? Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny, by Rev. Jennifer Butler. It's available for purchase starting October 13 (e-book) and October 20 (print book) on Follow @FaithPublicLife and @RevJenButler for updates!
On October 13, Rev. Jennifer Butler, CEO of Faith in Public Life, will release her highly anticipated new book Who Stole My Bible: Reclaiming Scripture as a Handbook for Resisting Tyranny, with a foreword by renowned author and theologian Brian McLaren.

In Who Stole My Bible?, readers will see the Bible’s liberative story arc from Genesis to Revelation through reimagined stories of pivotal points in the history of God’s people. Each chapter connects a key turning point in the Bible to America today and concludes with inspiring social justice movement stories that connect each Bible passage to faithful strategies for resisting tyranny.

“In this book, I will guide you through the Bible, touching on periods when God’s people resisted despotic leaders; and explore how God inspires and equips us to fight for equality and dignity today,” said Rev. Butler.

In 2020, the progressive faith movement is changing the face of religion in politics, breaking the stranglehold conservative white evangelicals have had on media narratives, and defending human dignity by resisting tyranny. 

This book is a call to action for people of faith to draw strength from the Bible as the story of a God who liberates people from all forms of oppression.
God of liberation, who hears our lament and energizes us into hopeful action, give us courage as we run this race against tyranny and oppression. We walk in the footsteps of everyday heroes who faced impossible odds yet prevailed. Help us to focus on what is ours to do, and trust that it will bear fruit. Amen.
