Part I

A Conversation with Rachael Denhollander

Thursday, May 10, 2018

A devout Christian, lawyer and teacher, Rachael has clearly and graciously challenged Christian institutions to live more faithfully as communities resistant to abuse and safe for survivors. What makes Rachael's voice so compelling is her steadfast Gospel convictions and sharp intellect. While conveying hard truths, she holds to a hope that the way of Christ offers persons and systems a response to abuse through transparency, accountability, repair and freedom.
