Confronting our Racial Volcanoes

This is a humbling and and contemplative blog entry by Michael O. Emerson, writer of numerous books on race and religion including , Divided by Faith: Evangelical Religion and the Problem of Race in America, (A Landmark book in understanding the racial divides so prominent in the evangelical world – if you haven’t at least skimmed it, ya need to), United by Faith: The Multiracial Congregation As an Answer to the Problem of Race, Against All Odds: The Struggle for Racial Integration in Religious Organizations , and People of the Dream: Multiracial Congregations in the United States.

The Blog entry is a guest entry that Emerson graciously wrote for my friend Ed. Gilbreath. Check it out and contribute to the conversation.
