The Gospel & Racial Reconciliation :: Book Review & Giveaway ::

If you aren’t familiar with The Gospel For Life Series, it’s definitely one you should become invested in understanding & knowing.

Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission president Russell Moore and Director of Policy Studies Andrew Walker, have edited & framed a wonderful way to explore current issues, to seek out personal awareness & life application.  Each installment in The Gospel For Life series is designed to address hot-button ethical issues facing Christians in today’s culture.

The books include discussion questions at the end of each chapter to engage the reader(s) & create a safe place for sharing, as well as, communication & understanding. Dr. Moore’s hope for the series is that it will “answer urgent questions that people are asking” and be easily utilized in anything from a small group setting, new member class, or sermon series.

The Gospel & Racial Reconciliation is one of those in this series that allows the reader to be educated & reminded of the gospel’s roots when approaching race & racial issues in today’s society. In the kingdom of God, it is not us against them.

The problem of racism stretches back as far as humanity’s origin in the book of Genesis. Brother pitted against brother, tribe against tribe—people have warred against one another, fueled by contempt for racial differences. Yet the gospel is a message of reconciliation. The kingdom of God is us reconciled to one another.

The editors have woven together contributions from some of today’s most outspoken & encouraging ministry leader’s & agents of change, who have a desire to see positive shifts in our relationships here on Earth, for kingdom purpose.
