The Reformation and Racial Reconciliation

Speakers: Jemar Tisby, Ligon Duncan Year: 2016 Session: Breakout Session

How might we think through the history of race, reformed theology, and the Reformation? Given the sins of the past and the present, how might the body of Christ unite to represent the unity of God and the power of the gospel. Join Ligon Duncan and Jemar Tisby as they trace race theory, theological thought, and Christian practice and malpractice throughout history and the Scripture.
