People of Color: Examining Christianity with Dr. Antipas Harris
Join Dr. Antipas Harris and Kristin as they discuss his book “Is Christianity the White Man’s Religion?: How the Bible Is Good News for People of Color”. With so much upheaval in our world today, Dr. Harris found himself concerned at the number of African American youth that were expressing their desire to leave Christianity. With much reflection, he addressed many of the deep seated issues with the church to bring awareness to a younger generation of Christians.
Join these two as they traverse a road not taken lightly on this week’s episode.
Dr. Antipas L. Harris holds a dual appointment as president-dean of Jakes Divinity School (JDS) and associate pastor at The Potter’s House (TPH), both located in Dallas, Texas. A brilliant thinker and prolific writer, Harris is advancing the vision of Bishop and Chancellor T.D. Jakes, founder of the fully-accredited, online seminary. Responding to the growing need for cutting-edge ecclesial leadership that transcends denominational lines, Harris’ mandate is to prepare today’s leaders for tomorrow’s Church.
Dr. Antipas writes for the general faith inquirer and does research to inform theological education with new insights to prepare ministers for leadership in a complex and often complicated world.
Boldly bearing witness to faith in the public square, Dr. Harris is, without question, a public theologian. His latest book, Is Christianity the White Man’s Religion? speaks to the personal relevance of Christianity and dares the Church to define – or re-define – itself as ordered by Scripture, not polity. Well regarded in the board room and the ‘hood, Dr. Antipas’ words often have a “Pied Piper” effect; audiences sense his authenticity and respond to his calls to action. With a unique blend of biblical wisdom and sagacious humor, Harris says what the Church needs to hear and writes what the world needs to know.
