*NEW* Women’s Virtual Summer Bible Study - all are invited!
Bloodlines: Race, Cross, and the Christian,
by John Piper
In Bloodlines: Race, Cross and the Christian John Piper shares from his own experiences growing up in the segregated South thoughtfully exposing the unremitting problem of racism. Instead of turning finally to organizations, education, famous personalities, or government programs to address racial strife, Piper reveals the definitive source of hope--teaching how the good news about Jesus Christ actively undermines the sins that feed racial strife, and leads to a many-colored and many-cultured kingdom of God. He focuses on specific biblical passages and shows how biblical doctrine rejects racism entirely.
Read one chapter prior to meeting. During our time together, we’ll read the associated Bible passages in the chapter. Kathy H. will lead the discussion on how they align with the author’s writing and what these passages mean to us as worshipers of Christ, both corporately and individually.
