‘The Land Is Not Empty’ named in Outreach magazine

March 28, 2022

Outreach magazine selected the Herald Press book The Land Is Not Empty: Following Jesus in Dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery by Sarah Augustine as an “Also Recommended” resource in the Social Issues and Justice category of its Resources of the Year. The book is featured along with the other selected resources in the March/April 2022 issue of Outreach. The titles selected for Resources of the Year address issues in evangelism, apologetics, the church, leadership, social issues and justice, among other concerns. More than 150 resources were submitted for consideration. An expert in each category evaluated the resources and chose what they considered to be the best. “Sarah Augustine is an important voice in our society,” says Amy Gingerich, Herald Press’s publisher. “We are proud of her work and thrilled that others like Outreach recognize her value as well.” In The Land Is Not Empty, Augustine investigates ways that the Doctrine of Discovery continues to devastate Indigenous cultures in North America. “The United States was founded on ill-gotten gains. And it has prospered,” writes Augustine. “Indigenous Peoples have been systematically disenfranchised and dispossessed as a matter of church policy for 500 years; by United States policy for 240 years.”
