Spencer Perkins; Chris Rice

Publication Date:




When Spencer Perkins was sixteen years old, he visited his bloodied and swollen father (pastor John Perkins) in jail. Police had beaten the black activist severely, and Spencer has never forgotten the moment. He couldn't imagine living in community with a white person after that. But his plans were changed. Chris Rice grew up in very different circumstances, of "Vermont Yankee stock", attending an elite Eastern college and looking forward to a career in law and government. But his plans were changed. Today Spencer and Chris are not only friends, but yokefellows - partners for more than a decade in the difficult ministry of racial reconciliation. From their own hard-won experience, they insist there is hope for our frightening race problem, that whites and African-Americans can live together in peace. Their hope, presented here in compellingly practical detail, is boldly and radically Christian. "The cause of racial reconciliation needs yokefellows...not solely for the sake of racial harmony - even though it will lead to that - but for the witness of the gospel".
