Biblical Authority & the Urban Context

The beauty of the Bible is that, as God’s infallible Word, it applies to people in every cultural context! This is Chris Brooks of Equipped. Dr. Jarvis Williams and I will explore the trustworthiness of Scripture in an urban audience. He will also introduce a beautiful new book designed to teach children a Biblical perspective on race and how the good news of Jesus Christ is the key to reconciliation!
