#Dominion is published in 2 weeks' time: a history less of Christianity than of what has made Christianity revolutionary & transformative over the course of its 2000 year existence.

So not a small theme...

First, To decenter means to move, slide, lift and clear from the center—the reference point. 2/ #LiberatingEvangelicalism .@FreedomRoadus
Now, #whiteness. Whiteness is a POLITICAL construct, created to order our world in such a way as to bestow full benefits of citizenship and humanity upon people deemed white by the state. 3/ #LiberatingEvangelicalism .@Evang4Justice @FreedomRoadus
