Subversive Witness (Dominique DuBois Gilliard)
Dominique DuBois Gilliard inspires us to reimagine how we think about privilege and exercise power. Instead of denying the existence of privilege or feeling incapacitated by it, Christians can learn to wield privilege as an instrument to advance the kingdom and sacrificially love our neighbors.
Gilliard illustrates how the faithful witness of biblical figures, from Esther to Zacchaeus, provides a blueprint for modern believers. By embodying Scripture's subversive call to leverage—and at times forsake—privilege, you will learn to love your neighbors sacrificially, enact systemic change, and grow more Christlike as a citizen of God's kingdom.
