Confronting Racism

Many Christian churches struggle with how to talk about race. The church has had a complicated history with the issue and has at times become divided. But Jemar Tisby, President of The Witness, says the church must be united. He talks with Ed Stetzer about the importance of engaging issues of faith, race, justice and culture from a biblical perspective.
