Exactly a year ago I wrote a cover story for Christian Century called A Pastor’s #MeToo Story. The response to that article convinced me that the subject matter needed more exploration. As a clergywoman and author — and also a survivor of sexual assault and clergy sexual misconduct — I was not only positioned to respond, but felt called to do so.
InterVarsity Press will publish the book in the Fall of 2019, so for the past three months I’ve been on hiatus from my position as pastor to write it. I’m thrilled to tell you that the first draft is done and we’ve settled on a name (it’s a doozy) . . .
The #MeToo Reckoning: Facing the Church’s Complicity in Sexual Abuse and Misconduct
I’ll reveal the cover when we have one. Meanwhile, if the topic is of interest to you, I hope you’ll consider joining my book launch team. You can contact me here or send a message on my Facebook Author page. I have learned so much from my readers. Thank you for your interest and support of this important topic!
