In what has arguably been called
“post-racial America,” how is the church doing at actually being post- racial‌ Have churches laid aside assumptions and prejudices‌ How does the church today function in its role of reconciliation‌

In The Post-Racial Church,
Kenneth Mathews and Sydney Park present a scriptural framework for how the church ought to operate as a multiethnic culture. If the church is called to the work of reconciliation,

if the universal church is multiethnic,
and if every tribe and tongue will praise God together in the end, then shouldn’t individual churches reflect that truth today‌

In this book pastors will find biblical, philosophical, and practical reasons for challenging the local church to become a multiethnic congregation that joins together in worship of the God who calls each of us.
