Is there a way around the racial issues in our world? Can we have a conversation without being considered racist? Is the only alternative to shut up and listen? Or is there another way? Dr. George Yancey has some ideas. In his book Beyond Racial Division (IVP, 2022), he discusses what we can actually do in our divided world to find unity. Sometimes it seems like that isn't possible. We want to love our brothers and sisters in Christ of all races, but so many things threaten that brotherly love. Listen in as Travis and George discuss all of this. You'll walk away with the hope that there is a way to love one another. There is a way through to the other side of the division.

In addition, Travis and George discuss his other book, One Faith No Longer: The Transformation of Christianity in Red and Blue America (NYU Press, 2021), a book that examines how Christianity between Democrats and Republicans are really two different religions, more akin to the relationship of Hinduism and Buddhism-a common root, but different faiths.

In addition to Beyond Racial Division, George is the author of Beyond Racial Gridlock: Embracing Mutual Responsibility, (IVP, 2009), One Body, One Spirit: Principles of Successful Multiracial Churches (IVP, 2009), Hostile Environment: Understanding and Responding to Anti-Christian Bias (IVP, 2015), Dehumanizing Christians: Cultural Competition in a Multicultural World (Routledge, 2018), and co-author of United By Faith: The Multiracial Congregation As an Answer to the Problem of Race (Oxford University Press, 2003), Transcending Racial Barriers: Toward a Mutual Obligations Approach (Oxford University Press, 2010), So Many Christians, So Few Lions: Is There Christianophobia In the United States? (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2014), Prejudice in the Press?: Investigating Bias in Coverage of Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Religion (McFarland, 2018),
