sarah sentilles

Sarah Sentilles is a writer, critical theorist, scholar of religion, and author of many books, including Breaking Up with God: A Love Story.

Her most recent book, Draw Your Weapons, has been named as one of 2017’s Books of the Year: it uses true stories of conscientious objectors and prison guards to ask how individuals can cope with violence and suffering.

At the core of her scholarship, writing, and activism is a commitment to investigating the roles language, images, and practices play in oppression, violence, social transformation, and justice movements.
