Publisher's Description

  • 15th Annual Outreach Magazine Resource of the Year - Also Recommended in Racial Reconciliation
  • 2017 Foreword INDIES Award Finalist
For a generation or so, society has tried to be colorblind. People say they don’t see race. But this approach has limitations. In our broken world, ethnicity and racial identity are often points of pain and injustice. We can’t ignore that God created us with our ethnic identities. We bring all of who we are, including our ethnicity and cultural background, to our identity and work as God's ambassadors. Ethnicity and evangelism specialist Sarah Shin reveals how our brokenness around ethnicity can be restored and redeemed, for our own wholeness and also for the good of others. When we experience internal transformation in our ethnic journeys, God propels us outward in a reconciling witness to the world. Ethnic healing can demonstrate God's power and goodness and bring good news to others. Showing us how to make space for God's healing of our ethnic stories, Shin helps us grow in our crosscultural skills, manage crosscultural conflict, pursue reconciliation and justice, and share the gospel as ethnicity-aware Christians. Jesus offers hope for healing, both for ourselves and for society. Discover how your ethnic story can be transformed for compelling witness and mission.

Editorial Reviews

"Shin has authored a thoughtful and intelligent book on the misconceptions and misunderstandings surrounding racial and ethnic tensions today. Readers will gain much-needed insight as well as practical recommendations on better understanding their own position, then addressing it. . . . Shin discusses how Christ followers can grow in their sensitivity to those from differing ethnic backgrounds and speak in ways that build bridges of understanding rather than reflect disrespect and fear. Readers will especially value her careful word of chastisement to the church to make the effort to face its own wounds to be able to fully welcome and serve others."
"Sarah Shin's Beyond Colorblind is a needed exploration of how to talk about race in America, urging Christians to move beyond simple political correctness towards building wholehearted, diverse communities. . . . Beyond Colorblind explores how religious communities can create spaces where ethnic identity is not just respected, but celebrated for the richness it offers."
