The Gospel and Racism

Racism is ugly. We know it. And yet it's more present in our hearts than we know.

Racism is a gospel issue. Do you know that? How deeply has the gospel saturated your own self-identity? How much does it own your heart and your eyes as you see all around you the diverse tribes and languages and peoples and nations for whom Jesus was slain and from which he ransomed people for God by his blood (Rev. 5:9-10)?

John Piper has written this book to help us. And Crossway produced this short documentary to go along with the book. He helps connect the dots between racism and the gospel, with transparent confession from his own upbringing in the segregated South. Thanks, Rachel Metzger, for bringing this video to my attention (awhile ago!).
