Emphasizing the biblical mandate to receive Others in their particularity and difference as gifts and mysteries bearing the grace of God, this study also offers a strong critique of the privileged who all too often rush to language of reconciliation and evade the huge inequalities surrounding conversations and practices dealing with xenophobia and injustice.
Rooted in the New Testament understanding of Gentile outsiders grafted into the covenant community, this study invites readers to an on-the ground faith that hearkens to a soliciting and revealing God the God who comes to us again and again through so-called outsiders, strangers, immigrants, and those without status.
The 5 video conversations between Will Willimon and Delia Ramirez focus on each of the five chapters of Fear of the Other:
Session 1: Saved by the Other
Session 2: The Other, My Enemy
Session 3: Learning to Fear Like Christians
Session 4: Loving the Other in Church
Session 5: Jesus, the Other
Will Willimon has published many books, including his preaching subscription service on MinistryMatters.com, Pulpit Resource, and Fear of the Other: No Fear in Love, both published by Abingdon Press.
