Drew Hart: Changing the Way the Church Views Racism

Derrick interviews Drew Hart on the church’s view of racism followed by Carol and Derrick reflecting together.  Drew Hart is a writer, speaker, and PhD candidate in theology and ethics with ten years of pastoral ministry experience. Regularly speaking at churches, conferences, and colleges, Drew brings together his pastoral experience with his academic training to challenge the Church on a variety of topics. Most recently he has been especially invested in conversations on white supremacy and racism and Christianity, but also routinely speaks on Christian discipleship to Jesus, western Christendom, Christian history, peacemaking and nonviolence, urban ministry, social media, etc.

Drew has a Christian Century hosted blog entitled ‘Taking Jesus Seriously’, while also writing occasionally for The Mennonite’s and Biblical Seminary’s blog as well. His own personal site is http://www.drewgihart.com. He sneaks in tweets with the handle @DruHart and can also be found on Facebook.  He is the author of Trouble I’ve Seen: Changing the Way the Church Views Racism.
