Resources: Race & the Gospel

Resources from a Christian Perspective

"Over the years God has used these resources on race to challenge, encourage and grow me. I pray you find them helpful.

Just a note, you will most likely disagree with some of the content here. That's okay. The authors come from varying backgrounds. When we talk about partisan politics things can become heated. But, just as there are great differences within the church on most topics, there are diverse perspectives represented in these resources.

I'm happy to discuss these topics with you so please do not hesitate to contact me."
