Akers, Matthew. One Lord, One Faith: Lessons on Racial Reconciliation from the New Testament Church. College & Clayton Press, 2021.
In One Lord, One Faith: Lessons on Racial Reconciliation from the New Testament Church, Matthew Akers explores the deep racial divides that threatened the early church. Believers, who learned how to celebrate their unity by applying Christ’s teachings to their lives, ultimately tore down the ethnocultural barriers that separated them. Their oneness astounded a world that had never seen this level of reconciliation. As a result of their commitment to love God and to love others, the Holy Spirit blessed their faithfulness, which convinced many that Jesus is Lord. The purpose of this book is to help twenty-first century American churches implement in their congregations the first-century church’s approach to racial reconciliation.
