Racism, greed, and politics: these are skeletons from the past that have come to haunt the Church, and the younger generations are demanding answers. In the United States, the African-American community holds the “white church” responsible for their plight with slavery. Throughout history, the Church has been under pressure to negotiate a secular compromise that nullifies its testimony. Is the Church going to continue in denial, or will it model the gospel’s transforming power?
Father Abraham has Many Sons and Daughters, highlights the Church as the family of transformed relationships. It focuses on transformation among the people of God and how it forms the foundation for our witness today. Traditional studies of how the gospel transforms individuals and communities focus on the believer’s character as the predictor of transformation. This book brings a needed balance by focusing on Kingdom relationships as the context of transformation through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
