In a country torn by division and desperate for unity, two men of South Carolina demonstrate how different races, life experiences, and pathways can lead to a deep friendship. South Carolina was rattled by the Charleston shooting in 2015, making it a fertile ground for racial reconciliation.
Tim Scott, an African-American US senator, and Trey Gowdy, a white US congressman, aren't divided by racial lines. They work together, eat meals together, campaign together, and come together for important decisions. In the fall of 2010 they were brand-new members of the US House of Representatives. They didn't even know each other. Their story as both politicians and friends is a model for others seeking real reconciliation.
In Unified, Senator Scott and Congressman Gowdy, through honesty and vulnerability, inspire readers to evaluate their own stories, clear the slate, and extend a hand of friendship that can change churches, communities, and the world.
