Rekindling the Intellectual, Spiritual, Creative legacy of Christians in Culture

JohnPerkinsFinal In John Perkin’s autobiography, Let Justice Roll Down, we learn the story of a sharecropper’s son who grew up in Mississippi amidst dire poverty and then fled to California when he was 17 after his older brother’s murder at the hands of a town marshal. He vowed never to return. However, despite being raised irreligious, he encountered Jesus Christ as an adult, learned to forgive and found his calling as an advocate for justice. John Perkins’ life and work have kept the issues of the poor and racial reconciliation on our radar for years and have made him one of our nation’s most respected voices on issues that are close to the heart of God.
