Author, social ethicist and religious scholar Jonathan L. Walton was raised to honor the mission of the civil rights movement. “It … was about how do you extend the legacy of service and commitment to something greater than yourself,” he explained in a 2013 Boston Globe interview.

The Ethics and Aesthetics of Black Televangelism and 2018’s A Lens of Love: Reading the Bible in Its World for Our World.
