Shelly Matthews, professor of New Testament at Brite Divinity School, remembers the Trayvon Martin shooting and reads from a letter she wrote to her senators regarding gun control and the phrase “thoughts and prayers.”
On March 15–16, 2019, Fuller’s School of Theology hosted a panel of Biblical scholars to discuss how the Bible might speak to American gun culture. The panelists reflected on violence as a tool for dominance, toxic masculinity, “thoughts and prayers,” mental health issues, and various other cultural factors that create the particular gun culture in the United States today.
