Rouse challenges readers to examine these issues in the light of Scripture, calling the church to build a "kingdom culture" that transcends biases, preferences, and even political loyalties, and instead fosters unity and healing in the body of Christ.
Having lived in the South and led a multi-ethnic church in the Atlanta area for three decades, Rouse reflects on his own cultural baggage and transparently shares his journey of listening, learning, and even repenting for historic wrongs whose repercussions affected the lives of those he loved.
Well-researched and written with both grace and conviction, One is not simply a critique of racism and injustice, but a call to action to build bridges of reconciliation on both personal and community levels that reflect the beauty of the gospel in a broken world.
Dennis Rouse is the founding pastor of Victory Church, which began in 1990. Over his 30 years as a pastor, he and his wife Colleen have helped build one of the most culturally diverse churches in the world, with 142 different nationalities and around 20,000 members. Dennis is also the author of "10" addressing the qualities that move you from a believer to a disciple of Christ. Dennis and Colleen have een married since 1983 and are now in their second phase of life, taking the messages they've ministered for years outside the church to help expand the Kingdom of God throughout the world. Their vision includes four major messages: to help churches build strong families, transform their communities, reconcile cultures, and reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
