Comments from Curator: The number of books about multiethnic churches and the interest on this topic has grown in recent years. At the same time, the American church sits in a society where racial tension is sadly alive and well. Churches in America have a huge opportunity here to be a showcase of how the Gospel can break down the dividing walls between different ethnicities, and then, in turn, be the transformational catalyst that can change our world today.
