Q & A on Can “White” People Be Saved | Willie Jennings and Mark Labberton

+ Willie Jennings, associate professor of systematic theology and Africana studies at Yale Divinity School, and Mark Labberton, president of Fuller Seminary, answer questions from the audience after a lecture on the dismantling of “whiteness” in the Christian faith.

The Fuller Missiology Lectures is an annual conference held by the School of Intercultural Studies. Its 2017 theme, “Race, Theology, and Mission,” considered the issue of race through a multicultural lens. Discussions aimed to develop historical, theological, interdisciplinary, and missiological approaches to race that can interrogate conventional thinking about ethnoracialism, colorism, and hierarchicalism (in its various manifestations across gender, economic, and class lines), even while revitalizing Christian witness and practices of racial justice, reconciliation, and peace in the present time.
