Stuck Together

May 2, 2023

Nelson Kraybill’s new book, Stuck Together: The Hope of Christian Witness in a Polarized World, is now out.

Nelson was the Programme Director of the London Mennonite Centre in the 1990’s and has recently served as President of Mennonite World Conference. We are working with him to plan to visit the UK next year when, amongst other things, he will talk to us about this book.

What does it mean to be a peacemaker in a polarized world?

It can feel as if the world–and the church–has never been more polarized. But when we feel worn down by the chasms dividing us, we can take hope from the early Christian vision of God uniting all things in Christ, a hope that can lead us to act. Stuck Together explores Bible stories and narratives ancient and modern that inspire us to open hearts and minds to persons with whom we disagree as we gain confidence in our own convictions.

Drawing from Scripture, from his own life journey, and from the witness of others, author J. Nelson Kraybill demonstrates how even small steps of reconciliation by confessionally grounded Christians can have big effect and give loving Christian witness in a polarized church and society.
