THE GOSPEL AND WOKENESS CONFERENCE: BIBLICAL ANSWERS FOR COMPLEX QUESTIONS
With so many pressing issues at the forefront of the national conscience in America, how should Christians respond to critical race theory (CRT), intersectionality, and wokeness? Presented by Abilene Theology at South Side Baptist Church in Abilene, Texas, in November, 2020, “The Gospel and Wokeness” Conference provides a biblical evaluation of, and response to, the worldview of wokeness presented by Dr. Owen Strachan.
