In light of the on-going racial tension in America, many Christian leaders are talking earnestly about racial reconciliation, but many believers don’t understand why this is a Gospel imperative and the average pastor may not know how to explain it. Dan Darling and Trillia Newbell step into this gap with a tremendous resource. They join Chris Brooks to talk about living out the race-transcending Gospel!
Daniel Darling is Vice-President for Communications of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, and Pastor of Teaching and Discipleship at Green Hill Church, Mt Juliet, Tennessee. He writes regularly in a range of publications, including The Washington Post and Huffington Post, and hosts the weekly podcast The Way Home.
