Publisher's Description

Despite Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove's progressive worldview, he was unaware of the invisible borders separating neighborhood churches in the New South. Then, as a political candidate, he began to reach out to the black community, including a dynamic church. What he discovered forever transformed his view of the body of Christ.

Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove lives with his wife, Leah, and other friends at the Rutba House, a new monastic community in Durham, NC. Wilson-Hartgrove has followed Jesus from a rural Southern Baptist church to Iraq in a time of war to a Christian community of hospitality in an urban neighborhood.

Jonathan is a graduate of Eastern University and Duke Divinity School.

Publisher Description

It's a fact: We live in a divided world. Christians have become so immune to the division that we don't notice it infecting the church. But we're compelled to live with a worldview that brings unity instead of division. Rediscover the power of faith as one believer crosses the color lines. Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove realizes the need for black and white Christians to become united in a new way and now proposes a fresh vision of Christian identity beyond the confines of race. Encounter a place where believers of all races are free to be bound in Christ.
