consuming jesus

A few weeks back I mentioned that Consuming Jesus: Beyond Race and Class Divisions in a Consumer Church was one of the top-3 books I’ve read this year. On Thursday I had the chance to interview the author, Dr Paul Louis Metzger, over the phone for Leadership Journal. Dr Metzger was very generous with his time and thoroughly answered each of my questions. After the interview we talked for a while about the ministry of NC3 as our multi-ethnic congregation is of interest to his research and personal passion.

The interview and accompanying book review won’t be out until October, but I’d recommend poking around the book’s blog, Those of us NC3 folks who are currently going through the Race Matters sermon series will find additional resources here. Be sure to explore the different categories on the sidebar.
