Late last month, Dr. Frank Smith, author of the first history of the PCA who is currently an RPCNA minister pastoring an inner-city mission church in Atlanta, GA, published Race, Church, and Society, which aims to provide a conservative evangelical perspective on race. Dr. Frank Smith’s views are in line with the views of Dr. Morton H. Smith, whom F&H has previously covered. Moved to write by the absurd events of last summer, he defends the moral permissibility of societal segregation, seeing it as a matter of practical wisdom rather than an issue predetermined by Scripture. Please see below the table of contents and how you can order a copy.
