  • Beyond Apathy: A Theology for Bystanders

    Beyond Apathy: A Theology for Bystanders

    Theological conversations about violence typically frame the conversation in terms of victim and perpetrator.

Beyond Apathy examines the theological significance of bystander participation in patterns of violence and violation within contemporary Western culture, giving particular attention to the social issues of bullying, white racism, and sexual violence. In doing so, it constructs a theology of redeeming grace for bystanders to violence that foregrounds the significance of social action in bringing about God's community.
