RESOURCE OF THE YEAR
InTENSIONal: Kingdom Ethnicity in a Divided World by D.A. Horton (NavPress)
Horton provides fresh language and metrics in the much-needed dialogue around race in America. InTENSIONal reframes what has become a tired dialogue around racial reconciliation, expands the conversation and roots it in a greater kingdom theology. With real and significant implications for mission in a divided world, this book emphasizes racial “conciliation,” which goes beyond reconciliation and affirms the inherent dignity and value of all racial/ethnic identities. Horton represents a fresh and powerful voice in kingdom conversations around justice in general, and ethnic conciliation specifically.
