ERB Editor C. Christopher Smith sits down with two first-time guests(Jeff Liou and Al Tizon), and one returning guest (Robert Chao Romero), for a live conversation at Urbana about the many hierarchical ways of thinking and being (including race and class) that give shape to our faith, and the destruction that is wrought in the process.

Jeff Ming Liou is the National Director of Theological Formation for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA. He is also an adjunct assistant professor of Christian ethics at Fuller Theological Seminary. Rev. Dr. Robert Chao Romero is “Asian-Latino,” and has been a professor of Chicana/o Studies and Asian American Studies at UCLA since 2005. He received his Ph.D. from UCLA in Latin American History and his Juris Doctor from U.C. Berkeley, and is also an attorney. He is author of Brown Church: Five Centuries of Latina/o Social Justice, Theology, and Identity (2020). Jeff and Robert are co-authors of the soon-to-be released book Christianity and Critical Race Theory: A Faithful and Constructive Conversation (Baker Academic). Al Tizon is affiliate professor of missional and global leadership at North Park Theological Seminary in Chicago and lead pastor of Grace Fellowship Church in San Francisco. He has authored numerous books, including the forthcoming, Christ Among the Classes: The Rich, the Poor, and the Mission of the Church, which we discuss in this episode.
