Publisher's Summary

David Ireland, pastor of a multiracial megachurch in New Jersey and diversity consultant to the NBA, equips Christians to usher in a new era of racial reconciliation in One in Christ.

Racial disharmony is tearing communities apart, both inside and outside the church. But Jesus Christ is, and was, a great reconciler. Warmth, regard, and respect emanated from His person toward others - all others. Part of this allure was the fact Jesus was comfortable in His skin. This made others who approached Him comfortable in their skin. This quality fuels the deconstruction of walls - the tearing down of barriers that keep us apart.

In One in Christ, Ireland shows us that this quality can be learned. In fact, at the cellular structure of Christianity is the ability to be cross-cultural. The Great Commission proclaims it. Jesus said, "Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19). The word nation is the Greek word ethnos, where we derive the English word ethnic. In essence, the last charge Jesus gave was for His followers to become cross-cultural ambassadors. This is not optional, Ireland says: We must each become racially accommodating.

Compassion and Conviction

This book has so many progressive qualities. Some of its chapters I listened to over and over again, and I intend to listen again. This book challenges you to look deep within yourself, and challenges you to come face-to-face with the reality of your thinking. At one point reduced me to choking back tears. It is wonderfully illustrated and definitive in the authors thinking. This book provides very practical measures of resolution to a very wide arena of topics and issues. I give this book my highest recommendation. In a nutshell, I absolutely love it.
