by Gary Holloway & John O. York
A powerful collection of essays exploring the biblical themes of justice and reconciliation and their application to the institutional racism that has characterized American Churches of Christ.
Unfinished Reconciliation grew out of two conferences held ten years apart, the Biblical Preaching Seminar at Lipscomb University in May 2001, with the theme, "Preaching Social Justice," and the Christian Scholars Conference at Pepperdine University in June 2011. These academic conferences boldly faced the unsettling reality of racism in our churches. We are still divided by race, not united in Christ. In the decade between the conferences, much reconciliation took place, as evidenced by the last two chapters of the book. But much work still remains.
