“[Black] dignity has lingered in a state of confusion for generations in this country as we’ve faced constant harassment, false theologies, white supremacy, syncretistic evangelicalism, and civic oppression,” writes Dr. Eric Mason. Consequently, the task of such apologetics is to “restore Black dignity with the gospel.”
In this episode of the Influence Podcast, I’m talking to Mason about the nature and necessity of urban apologetics. I’m George P. Wood, executive editor of Influence magazine and your host.
Dr. Eric Mason is founder and lead pastor of Epiphany Fellowship in Philadelphia, as well as founder and president of Thriving, an urban resource organization committed to developing leaders for ministry in urban contexts. He is editor of Urban Apologetics: Restoring Black Dignity with the Gospel, published by Zondervan.
