Reconciling All ThingsReconciling All Things: A Christian Vision for Justice, Peace and Healing, by Emmanuel Katongole and Chris Rice, co-directors of the Duke Center for Reconciliation, has been named one of 10 winners in the annual Christianity Today Book Awards competition.

The book was chosen from among more than 430 titles submitted by 67 publishers. Editors at Christianity Today, an evangelical Christian magazine, selected finalists, and a panel of judges select winners in 10 categories. Reconciling All Things was the winner in the “Christian Living” category.

Christianity Today described winners as “those books that best shed light on the people, events, and ideas that shape evangelical life, thought, and mission.”

In Reconciling All Things, Katongole and Rice cast a comprehensive vision for reconciliation that is biblical, transformative, holistic and global. They draw on the resources of the Christian story, including their own individual experiences in Uganda and Mississippi, to bring solid theological reflection to bear on the work of reconciling individuals, groups and societies. They recover distinctively Christian practices that will help the church be both a sign and an agent of God's reconciling love in the fragmented world of the twenty-first century.
