On Doing Justice and Loving Kindness in a Time of Reckoning
""This book comprises a scholar-pastor's theological and ethical reflections on his vocational journey in two highly racialized American cities. In solidarity with teachers and peers who share his quest for racial justice, Michael Granzen concludes this insightful treatise with five short essays by colleagues, including his wife. All who are concerned about our nation's racial divide will benefit greatly from the practical wisdom contained in this excellent book.""
--Peter J. Paris, Princeton Theological Seminary, emeritus
