1 + 1 = 1
Creating a Multiracial Church from Single Race Congregations
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Chinn shines much-needed light on a road less traveled: the generation of new multiracial churches through the blessed union of existing congregations. While opportunities to birth these new creations abound, materials to assist those serving them do not. As a pastor of just such a church, I found this work extremely relevant, honest, and insightful, and I believe others following Christ on this road of reconciliation and rebirth will find it a beneficial navigation aid."
--Thame Fuller, pastor of One Church
"You don't need to be a math wizard to understand 1 + 1 = 1 by Chinn . . . Based on biblical wisdom and practical advice gleaned from years of experience in leading a multiracial congregation, this timely and strategic book helps lead the way in resolving church growth and racial problems and puzzles for the sake of church transformation through the gospel of reconciliation."
--Paul Louis Metzger, author of Consuming Jesus: Beyond Race and Class Divisions in a Consumer Church
"Chinn's work is a gigantic step forward, filling a gaping hole in our understanding . . . This is a fascinating book, highly original, vitally important."
--From the Foreword by Michael O. Emerson
