The Myth of Colorblind Christians: Interview with Jesse Curtis (Ep 50)

 / 

The latest from our podcast Resist and Restore!

In this Episode:

Interview with professor, historian, and author Jesse Curtis. Jonny interviews Jesse on his new book “The Myth of Colorblind Christians: Evangelicals and White Supremacy in the Civil Rights Era.” They delve into ideas about how “colorblindness” fails to confront systemic racism as we know it today, how Evangelicalism and social justice are pitted against each other, the history of the Church Growth and racial reconciliation movements, and more. It’s a rich interview with tons of history. Also in this episode, the pastors talk back about receiving the gift of God’s mercy. Later, a little Spiritual Show and Tell: the new Pedro the Lion album, Hinds’ Feet on High Places, and caring for your body with a massage.
