Episode #48 - Dr. Carl Ellis, Jr. and Racial Justice

August 18, 2017
How Should Christians think about and deal with racial justice issues?
Dave is joined by Dr. Carl Ellis, Jr. Carl is a pastor, author, the Pastor for Cultural Apologetics at New City Fellowship, and a former professor of Dave's.
The conversation begins with Carl discussing his time at L'Abri under Francis Shaeffer and then moves into the main topic- racism and the church.
This episode is jam-packed and deals with a very hard and current issue within our country, but Dr. Carl Ellis leaves us with the beautiful reminder that the source of justice is only through the biblical worldview and that God can be glorified through how the church deals with cultural matters.
