Falls Church Forum w/ Dr. George Yancey
Sunday, September 20th, 5:00pm ET
About the September 20th Forum: Professor George Yancey (PhD, University of Texas) is a professor of sociology at Baylor University, specializing in areas such as anti-Christian bias in culture, biracial families, and race and ethnicity questions. He is the author of Beyond Racial Gridlock: Embracing Mutual Responsibility (InterVarsity Press, 2006), a book that both critiques secular approaches to dealing with racial tensions, while also offering an alternative, Christian framework for healing. Sam will host a discussion with him on September 20 where he shares more about this work. Following the presentation, we’ll engage in a time of discussion with Dr. Yancey. Whether or not you agree with each piece of Dr. Yancey’s analysis, you will surely benefit from his years of research into the area and desire to approach it in a biblical manner.
