Reviews

Layton Williamss voice and experience are much-needed in our current political, theological, and cultural climate. Every day I have conversations with people who are longing to bridge deep divides but have few tools to draw from. Holy Disunity is exactly what the world needs right now! With practical wisdom, vulnerable insights, and excellent questions for reflection and discussion, Williams inspires and challenges us to live out a better way together.
Kathy Escobar, author of Faith Shift and Practicing: Changing Yourself to Change the World


I figured out I was reading something powerful and deeply faithful when I began to mine it for sermons, writing down quotations and illustrations that would preach in my congregation. I heartily recommend it for all people who find themselves drawn into the complexity and messiness of our day, even when we dont understand why.
Shannon Johnson Kershner, senior pastor of Fourth Presbyterian Church, Chicago, Illinois


Holy Disunity is clear, cool water for those of us emotionally and spiritually dehydrated from navigating the discord around us.Layton E. Williams reminds us of the beauty of difference, and gives us a wealth of ideas and practices to help us lovingly embrace and engage the disparate people around usin ways that are both time-tested and incredibly fresh.
John Pavlovitz, author of A Bigger Table and Hope and Other Superpowers


"Holy Disunitydoes crucial work in providing a scriptural and theological basis for challenging the unhealthy status quo regarding conflict in the world of spirituality, especially in church contexts. The careful attention to power dynamics this book provides is vital."
