“White Christians who are serious about reconciliation are going to have to cross ecclesiastical as well as color boundaries, boundaries of longstanding cultural traditions as well as boundaries of ethnicity. Such barriers can be crossed only if we unite on the basis of our common need before our Lord Jesus Christ, who has reconciled us all to the Father in one body on his cross.”
Craig Keener, “The Gospel and Racial Reconciliation,” in The Gospel in Black and White: Theological Resources for RacialReconciliation, ed. Dennis Okholm (Downers Grove: InterVarsity, 1996), 130.
