Aliens in the Promised Land: Why Minority Leadership Is Overlooked in White Christian Churches and Institutions
Today’s church growth is centered in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, and 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.
