Believing that racism hindered their evangelical efforts, the Convention's full-time missionaries and venture board leaders attacked racism as unchristian, hence discovering themselves at odds with the pervasive racist and segregationist ideologies that ruled the South. This revolutionary view of race under pressure the biblical harmony of humanity, encompassing all races and transcending particular ethnic divisions. In All based on God's Plan, Alan Scot Willis explores those ideals and the chasm they created in the conference.
