What does it look like for Christians to live faithfully alongside others whose convictions may differ entirely from their own? That is a question on the mind of Christians grappling with the fact that they live in a deeply divided and pluralistic society. Some Christians find themselves ill-equipped to respect differences while also holding on to their core beliefs.
In Uncommon Ground: Living Faithfully in a World of Difference, pastor Timothy Keller and law and religion expert John Inazu gain insights from Lecrae, Tish Harrison Warren, Kristen Deede Johnson, Trillia Newbell, Tom Lin, and several other Christians about how they pursue peace in a sometimes antagonistic world.
Faithfully Magazine spoke separately with Inazu and contributor Kristen Deede Johnson, a professor of theology and Christian formation, by email about Uncommon Ground. The transcript has been edited for clarity.
