VOLUME 4, 2012
In this issue, our contributors take up Dr. Homer Ashby's concerns by recognizing the need for vision and healing for black people from past and present systemic racism and liberating lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgendered people of all races from current religious and social oppressions. The writers offer this scholarship as resources for pastoral counselors and others working with marginalized groups.
