The Weekly Hit List: March 29, 2013

Educating All God's ChildrenEducating All God’s Children by Nicole Baker Fulgham received a four-star review from Christianity Today

“Using dozens of her own similar stories, Nicole Baker Fulgham’s Educating All God’s Children . . . champions a faith-based message of ‘educational equity.’ Though fortunate enough to have attended better schools than those in her largely African American neighborhood, Fulgham argues that today’s impoverished families have little access to such mobility.

“Her book offers a candid theological plea for Christians (and, by implication, especially Republican Christians) to prioritize educational equity alongside issues like abortion and same-sex marriage. Educating All God’s Children convincingly shows scriptural mandates for closing the educational gap between low-income areas and wealthier communities.”
