One New Man:
The Cross and Racial Reconciliation in Pauline Theology

Jarvis Williams (Broadman & Holman, 2010)

Blurb Review


As the title indicates, this book addresses a central concern within the contemporary Church - racial reconciliation. The author himself is an African-American, is married to a Hispanic, and the father of a biracial child. Paul's message of racial reconciliation is thus a reality he lives with every day.

This book principally presents a worldview of race within a biblical-theological framework. Williams fundamentally argues for the biblical superiority of racial reconciliation over against the secular goal of ethnic diversity and contends genuine racial reconciliation can only be achieved through the gospel. Williams also offers cogent advice regarding living out the gospel's message of racial reconciliation. This book is highly recommended, especially for those engaged in urban ministry or shepherding local congregations.
