The problem of race in America is more deeply embedded and intractable than most American Christians probably realize. Everyone reads Scripture in a context, in a culture and that reality influences the way we understand and apply it. Race, slavery, Jim Crow, and prejudice has been a part of the fabric of American culture since before there was, formally, an America. Dr Vincent Bacote is Associate Professor of Theology and Director of the Center for Applied Christian Ethics at Wheaton College. He is author of The Spirit in Public Theology: Appropriating the Legacy of Abraham Kuyper. He was on campus this past November to convocation lectures about these issues and how Reformed Christians must face them and about how Abraham Kuyper can help.
