Race and Christianity

Recordings are now available from the Together For the Gospel 2008 conference. Worthy of special mention is Thabiti Anyabwile's presentation on "Bearing the Image: Identity, the Work of Christ, and the Church." I will shamelessly steal Michael Spencer's summary posted at the Boar's Head Tavern:
Anyabwile’s thesis is that the biological discussion of race is anti-Biblical and a complete distraction from what will cause us to see ourselves and others as descendants of Adam (biologically and spiritually) and in the “one new man/race” reality that actually enables us to build communities that witness to Christ and the Gospel.

This is a very good discussion of "race" from a Christian viewpoint. Listen to it.
