Why Did Jesus Die? An Introduction to the Atonement

Last week I finished Part One of a new seminar called "Starting Points,"

"Christian faith does not require a person to check their brain at the door. No, Christian faith is strongest when one’s head and one’s heart are in agreement. We may not find all the answers for which we search, but there are some critical starting points in our quest."

The Worst Book on Racial Reconciliation Ever?—A Critical Review of One New Man by Jarvis J. Williams

One New Man: The Cross and Racial Reconciliation in Pauline Theology

Author: Jarvis J. Williams
Paperback: 142 pages
Publisher: B&H Publishing 2010
Language: English


Ephesians 2.11-22 is one of my favorite passages in Scripture. It's one of the passages that most inspires me to pursue the unique and beautiful Kingdom of God that transforms the world. It's also one of the clearest passages in the Bible regarding racial reconciliation—a subject about which I am very passionate. So, naturally, when I saw the title of Jarvis J. Williams' book, I was excited to read it. I was also interested because I deduced from the book's endorsements and Williams' online faculty bio that he is a Neo-Calvinist. As a highly critical opponent of that movement, I hoped that Williams could break my stereotypes and surprise me with thinking on racial reconciliation that doesn't toe the party line. Unfortunately, my hopes were thoroughly dashed and I was deeply disappointed. In this critical review, I will attempt to relate all the ways One New Man did not live up to its billing, nor adequately address the subject of racial reconciliation. An exhaustive recounting may very well be beyond the scope of this review, but I will nevertheless endeavor to highlight the most important ways this book fails.
