Publisher's Description

Today's church growth is centered in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, evangelicalism must adapt to changing demographics or risk becoming irrelevant. Yet many evangelicals behave "tribally" valuing the perspective of only those like themselves while also denying any evidence of racial attitudes in the church.

Anthony Bradley has gathered scholars and leaders from diverse "tribes"—black, Hispanic, and Asian—to share advice on building relationships with minority denominations and valuing the perspectives and leadership of minority Christians (not just their token presence). They seek to help evangelicalism more faithfully show the world that the gospel brings together people from all tribes, languages, and cultures.

Contributors include Vincent Bacote, Anthony B. Bradley, Carl F. Ellis Jr., Lance Lewis, Juan Martínez, Orlando Rivera, Harold Dean Trulear, Ralph C. Watkins, and Amos Yong.

About the Editor

Anthony B. Bradley (PhD, Westminster Theological Seminary; MDiv, Covenant Theological Seminary; MA, Fordham University) is associate professor of theology and ethics at The King's College in New York City and a research fellow at the Acton Institute in Grand Rapids.
