“David Ireland’s new book distills over thirty years of experience ... into a practical guide for others to use. If you feel God is calling you to unite rather than divide ... One in Christ is for you!" —Luis Palau, international evangelist
“Each time I have had the pleasure of spending time with Dr. David Ireland, I have gained insight into the depth of God’s Word ... a trait I have found in only a handful of others.”—Kurt Warner, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback
Racial strife is tearing communities apart across the United States, but many of us don’t know how to start healing the divide.
NBA Diversity Consultant David Ireland offers an answer.
In One in Christ, Dr. Ireland draws on years of experience pastoring and counseling a congregation of over 9,000 members from more than 70 nations to equip you with practical skills for racial reconciliation.
One in Christ directs you to the great reconciler, Jesus Christ. Warmth, regard, and respect emanated from His person toward others—no matter their background.
In a divided society, Christians must demonstrate how to practice unity, tearing down the barriers that keep us apart. Thankfully, true reconciliation can be learned. Ireland draws on Christ’s command to “make disciples of all nations” to teach believers how to usher in a new era of racial reconciliation, an era founded on the love of Jesus Christ.
