My church has become increasing committed to the gospel vision of a racially unified family of believers. Every now and then something will happen in my ministry or life (there is quite a bit of overlap between those two things, but they aren’t entirely one and the same) that reminds me how far we still have to go. Today has been such a day.
Providentially, I saw this video trailer for a book (or maybe it is a trailer for a longer video) that John Piper has written on race, the Cross, and the Christian. It is called Bloodlines and I can’t wait to read it. Not everyone loves Piper, and there are times when he misses it. But there are times when he is gloriously right. I expect this book to fall in the latter category.

Awesome! I wanna read it, too. Have you heard his teaching titled “Racial Diversity at an Infinite Cost”? i have the CD somewhere…
well when i’m done with it, i’ll be sure to pass it along.
i’m going to find that teaching online. i think all of his messages are archived.
