Join us as we interview Alan Cross on our new podcast. He is the pastor of Gateway Baptist Church in Montgomery, AL, and the author of When Heaven and Earth Collide: Racism, Southern Evangelicals and the Better Way of Jesus. It’s published by New South, Inc.
Alan talks about his journey that brought him to Montgomery, and how that led him down the path of asking how the church could accept such rampant racism at certain times in it’s past. This study led ultimately to writing a book on the subject.
Were the good old days actually that good? Are we making the same mistakes today, even if it doesn’t take the form of racism? How did greek philosophy play a part in Southern culture? Alan gives us his great analysis.
