I think this is an important statement: “People can meet God within their cultural context but in order to follow God, they must cross into other cultures because that’s what Jesus did in the incarnation and on the cross.” (p. 21)
And this: “In theory, we support the vision of a diverse, integrated and interdependent body of Christ, but we certainly don’t want to venture outside our neighborhoods to live the vision.” (p. 26)
Lots of interesting social science experiments on how we view people “like us” vs. “others.”
Christena is smart and funny (my favorite combo) with a true heart for gospel unity, and I hope and pray that church leaders and Christians across America read her words and take them to heart.
What is even better is that she weaves these things together in such a way that it is accessible to everyone. I find myself simultaneously in the classroom, in theological study, and deeply reflective in regards to my own complicity in the division that wreaks havoc on the church today.
Christena is asking questions which, from my view, are some of the most critical questions facing the church today. One of the great themes of God's Kingdom is how God is bringing together a New Humanity Family as, through Jesus, he reconciles all things to himself and all of us to one another. Christena's work in Disunity in Christ is a great help to any church who sees its calling as living into the trajectory of God's Kingdom future...today.
My interest is in seeing a cross cultural coming together of the body. I think this book could help a lot.
This is a nice book to read oneself or in a group. Christena helps us understand some of our implicit biases we have about others that keep people at arms length (or worse) and concrete practices to help bridge those divides. A much needed book in the Church!
