Despite Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove's progressive worldview, he was unaware of the invisible borders separating neighborhood churches in the New South. Then, as a political candidate, he began to reach out to the black community, including a dynamic church. What he discovered forever transformed his view of the body of Christ.

This book wrecked me and brought me back to life. I needed a book about racial reconciliation from the guidelines of scripture and how we're all in this together. No matter how bad it gets. God used this book in this season in my life. I recommend you read it. I was challenged deeply by its words and ideas. Praise God that we are free to be bound together in Jesus. For He is freedom and the Way.
Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove's reflections as a white person joining a black church and living and becoming part of a black community in Durham, NC. - Very insightful
Jonathan's own journey from Klan country to a pre-dominantly Black church (he's white).

A necessary read for suburban Christianity.
