In a culture plagued by racial division and unrest, the church has convinced itself that prejudice is not a pressing issue. But visit a local congregation on any given Sunday morning and a quick scan of the crowd will reveal that unconsciously held attitudes and presuppositions continue to divide the very body of Christ.
Sharing his own experience with prejudice and his expertise in the area of racial reconciliation, Dr. Charles Ware traces the history of the misunderstandings behind racism, examines the biblical model for reconciliation, describes the role of love in the church and community, and explores the answers to such questions as:
- Don't people of different races prefer to be with "their own"?
- What does Scripture say about the origins and unity of different races?
- How do you assimilate several races and cultures into a cohesive congregation?
- Does the Bible address interracial marriage?
