    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 Harvard University professor of religion and society shares his expertise in books such as 2009’s Watch This! The Ethics and Aesthetics of Black Televangelism and 2018’s A Lens of Love: Reading the Bible in Its World for Our World.
