A One-Night Event: "Beyond the Color Barrier"
Sponsored by the Center for Christian Study, InterVarsity, Reformed University Fellowship, OneWay, Asian InterVarsity and SILT at the University of Virginia, Anthony Bradley presents a biblical theology of ethnicity (what is race/ethnicity according to God?). Soong-Chan Rah explores the impact that our shifting ethnic demographics will have on the future of American Christianity and offer a practical challenge in carrying out God's reconciling work. This is a great model for campus ministries to partner in order to facilitate campus-wide conversation. Watch the video here.
The Next Evangelicalism
In this book professor and pastor Soong-Chan Rah calls the North American church to escape its captivity to Western cultural trappings and to embrace a new evangelicalism that is diverse and multiethnic. Rah brings keen analysis to the limitations of American Christianity and shows how captivity to Western individualism and materialism has played itself out in megachurches and emergent churches alike.

Aliens In The Promised Land
In an age when church growth is centered in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, evangelicalism must adapt to changing demographics or risk becoming irrelevant. Yet many evangelicals behave tribally valuing the perspective of only those like themselves while also denying any evidence of racial attitudes in the church. Anthony Bradley has gathered scholars and leaders from diverse tribes black, Hispanic, and Asian to share advice on building relationships with minority communities and valuing the perspectives and leadership of minority Christians (not just their token presence.)
