In a diverse, divided world, pastors and church leaders are faced with the question of how to lead across ethnic lines to bring healing and unity to the body of Christ. How can the church more accurately reflect the vision of God's kingdom, gathering together every tribe and nation? It all begins with leaders whose minds and hearts have been transformed by the gospel.
Author Alvin Sanders believes the church is facing a chairos moment - the right time - to address the issue of ethnic division and tension within the church. Through this book, he offers a "how-to" resource for Christian leaders to lead their organizations in a majority-minority, multi-ethnic America.
Bridging the Diversity Gap is for pastors and ministry leaders who want a biblical process and principles, informed by the best academic thought on race and ethnicity, to engage with an ethnically diverse church or organization and guide them toward becoming one in Christ.
