RACE SELECTION

Beyond Racial Division 

A Unifying Alternative to Colorblindness and Antiracism

 

Registration is closed.

 

This group will read Dr. George Yancey‘s new book, Beyond Racial Division. Dr. Yancey is an important voice in the Christian discussion about racism. Yancey argues that the two extremes of colorblindness and antiracism currently employed as paths to ease racial tension in the United States are not working very well to bring unity. He contends that colorblindness is a denial of racial tensions and historical realities, while antiracism stokes the fires of hostility, causing polarization and tribalism rather than bringing diverse people together. 

 

Yancey outlines his vision for an alternative way out of division and toward racial unity. The CFBU discussion leader will help readers process Yancey's “mutual accountability” model in light of historic Christianity.

Discussion Leader: Kevin Briggins

Day/Time: Tuesdays, 4:30 PM (PT)/7:30 PM (ET)

Dates: April 26, May 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31

 

DISCIPLESHIP SELECTION

Faithfully Different

Regaining Biblical Clarity in a Secular Culture

Registration is closed.

This group will read and discuss Natasha Crain's new book, Faithfully Different. As believers we should all desire to be equipped to confidently identify and lovingly respond with truth to current worldview pressures like cancel culture, social justice, progressive Christianity, deconstruction, and virtue signaling.  


Crain teaches readers to engage effectively with an increasingly hostile world that ridicules biblical truths in the areas of family, friends, media, academia, and government. She explains with clarity how to defend our faith from misguided influences, living as bold witnesses for the Lord, and facing challenges that offer opportunities to stand strong for Christ. Crain offers the insight we need to believe, think, and live biblically in this turbulent climate. The CFBU discussion leader will help readers process the book's ideas in light of historic Christianity.

Discussion Leader: Alicia Moss

Day/Time: Thursdays at 4:00 PM (PT)/7:00 PM (ET)

Dates: April 21, 28, May 5, 12, 19 and 26

FIRST SOURCE SELECTION

A Black Theology of Liberation

An Introduction to the Work of Dr. James Cone

 

Registration is closed.

This primer offers a great introduction to Black Liberation Theology. If you want to truly understand the work of Dr. James Cone, then this is the group for you. Dr. Cone's vision of Black Theology is growing in influence among evangelical leaders and pastors. His ideas were a foreshadowing of what progressive Christians and non-believers alike call “lived experience” as the preferred truth. Our discussion leaders will help readers process the book's ideas in light of historic Christianity.

Discussion Leaders: Dr. Joe Miller and Leroy Hill

Day/Time: Wednesdays, 4:00 PM (PT)/7:00 PM (ET)

Dates: April 20, 27, May 4, 11, 18 and 25
