In early November, I had the privilege of delivering the John Reed Miller Lectures at RTS-Jackson. While there I had the tremendous joy of having dinner with a diverse group of students participating in the African-American Leadership Initiative and sitting down with Jemar Tisby and Philip Holmes of the Reformed African American Network [1] to talk life and theology. That dinner and interview were a tremendous blessing to me. It’s encouraging to see the Lord’s work of grace so powerfully performed in the lives of younger saints. It’s also a mark of grace to now speak in terms of “younger saints”–where did the time go!

Anyway, the brothers at RAAN have been posting the interviews in brief segments. If interested you can chase the following links:

Part 1: Increasing popularity of Reformed theology, Reformed theology and the African American church tradition, and why some Black church leaders tend liberal theologically [2]

Part 2: Adopting Reformed jargon, hip hop, and pastoral practice [2]

Part 3: What is Reformed theology and upcoming book projects [3]

Part 4: The Decline of African-American Theology, “Black” and “White” preaching [4]

Thanks, brothers, for this stimulating hour of conversation and for what you’re doing to draw God’s people together for His glory and praise.
