Black/white relations in the culture at large and in the church in particular continue to be a stain on America's respectable reputation. The church has clearly failed and must seek to function by God's kingdom perspective. In this legacy message, Tony Evans seeks to promote a biblical understanding of the kingdom foundation of oneness by detailing why we don't have it, what we need to do to get it, and what it will look like when we live it.
Fully encompassing areas of unity, history, culture, the church and social justice, Evans looks to the scriptures for the balance between righteousness and justice that is crucial for applying in this generation and in training the next. A full section on black church history provides a background and understanding that has often been neglected. Recalling experiences in his own evangelical journey, Evans shares kingdom minded approaches for biblical justice and social restoration. To better glorify God and help heal the persistent racial divide, all church members would do well to read and learn from Oneness Embraced.
Tony Evans is the senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship Church in Dallas, and president of The Urban Alternative, a ministry devoted to bringing about change in urban communities through the Church. He is the author of many books, including Free at Last, The Battle is the Lord's, Our God Is Awesome, Returning to Your First Love, The Promise, Who is this King of Glory? What Matters Most, and The Best Is Yet To Come.- Publisher.
