Product Description

For almost thirty years, Kimberly Cash Tate lived, moved and had her being in blackness. That was who she was. Her decisions, judgments, attitudes and opinions-the way she saw the world--were all filtered through her black lens. Even gender issues paled in relative importance. She was black first. A woman second. But then she acquired another defining adjective--Christian--and her world was turned completely upside down.

In More Christian than African-American, Kimberly shares her life before and after Christ. In transparent prose, she leads the reader through the seasons of growing up in Prince George's County, Maryland, "reveling" in college and finding the love of her life during law school, only to risk losing him when he accepted a position in Madison, Wisconsin. What black woman in her right mind would volunteer to move there? It was too "white." Ultimately, it was the Lord who moved Kimberly to Madison, where He saved her and utterly transformed her view of marriage, motherhood and the career she'd worked so long and hard to achieve. As she ventured beyond the familiarity of race, God changed her identity.

Publisher's Weekly

After the release of this memoir’s first edition 10 years ago, Tate, an entertainment lawyer turned novelist, received negative reactions to its bold title. In this second edition, she justifies its retention and provides an update about her life. In some ways, the title sums up the book’s two distinct sections: the first part recounts events that led to Tate’s struggle with racial identity as she moves from a mostly black university to a mostly white Midwestern setting. The second part chronicles an emotion-filled faith transformation that leads her to embrace “this other defining adjective, Christian,” an identity that she finds in conflict with black culture. The title seems to promise at least some sociological conclusions, but the author abandons that promise after the book’s introduction and instead relies on an overly simple understanding of a diverse black community. While this quick read delivers a touching reminder to Christians that their relationship with Jesus transcends color, some readers may be confused by a meandering time line that randomly refers to past events, and others may be put off by a title that’s too audacious for an isolated testimony.

    I loved this book. I love how God works in each of us, as we yield to Him. Thank you, Kimberly, for sharing your story with me. Jesus' prayer for us in John 17: 21 comes to mind "...that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you."
