Overview

Although so many Christians live in multiracial and multicultural communities, many Christian churches do not reflect the diversity of their communities. Sunday morning worship remains racially divided. Multiracial Church Dynamics offers a straightforward examination of the topic. The strategies to move from uniracial to multiracial churches are relevant to a broad audience in the Christian community, pastors and laity alike. The specificity of the topic and the author's clear viewpoint all contribute to a clearly presented controlling idea, one that readers will understand and appreciate.

Bishop William H. Willimon writes in the foreword: "Richard Stryker is not content simply to lament the sad state of the church to obey Christ's commands and to embody the reach and the richness of his salvation in our life together. In this book he offers specific, tested, practical help for pastors and church leaders who want their congregations to grow and to be all that God intends."
