“In this important book, updated to reflect the difficult realities we now face, Scott Bader-Saye reminds us that the only way to break through a life of fear is by embracing a different way, a way of love. This is not easy work, but it is crucial work, and in these pages we learn how to risk much for God’s dream of a better world.”—The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church; author of Love Is the Way: Holding On to Hope in Troubling Times
“In a culture consumed by anxiety and divided against itself, Scott Bader-Saye’s Following Jesus in a Culture of Fear couldn’t have come at a better time. Bader-Saye tackles the most pressing moral challenges of our day: the dangers of American exceptionalism, of stoking fear for profit, and of manufacturing fear of the stranger in our midst. Bracing in its honesty and inspiring in its call for a risky faith, Bader-Saye’s book offers readers biblical wisdom and well-founded hope for our turbulent times.”—Joy Ann McDougall, associate professor of systematic theology, Candler School of Theology, Emory University
