Kravi1 Stars Out Of 5CRTMay 26, 2021KraviQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This book is unadulterated Critical Race Theory. The title implies building bridges to each other. But it contains none of that. It assumes all the usual facts not in evidence and blames White people, the Church and the system for every perceived wrong. The only difference with "Be The Bridge" and it's secular counterparts is it couches it's content in christianese and commits eisegesis on scripture!
RFox1 Stars Out Of 5Not of GodMay 6, 2021RFoxThis book has some points but as a black man and a true believer in Christ as a Christian this book is bonkers this Author does not even know the difference between prejudice and racsim. And most of the book is contrary to the Bible. this should not be the center point for race discussion in America. America's biggest problem with race is its citizens do not want to unpack the truth about the past and the history of systematic racsim of the past and present until we do that you cannot even have an intelligent conversation about race.
Joy5 Stars Out Of 5Unifying--within the body of ChristJanuary 5, 2021JoyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It always saddens me as a Christian when people can't confront the reality of race in our country. The book doesn't propose guilt, it proposes communication and listening. Agreed, restoration is found in Christ alone--as is repentance. Nothing Diggs writes suggests otherwise, as is evidenced by the scriptures that frame each discussion. Those who shy away from difficult conversations will miss the fruit of reconciliation. If you read this book and actually participate in the discussions with an open heart, you can't help but come away with a better understanding of your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, no matter your race. "Having conversations with fellow Christians of different walks of life, listening to one another fully, and through the lens of the gospel" couldn't be a more accurate description of Be the Bridge. I've personally been a part of two BTB studies; they proved challenging at times, but so incredibly necessary. None of us would trade the lessons we've learned from one another as sisters in Christ. Thank you, Ms Diggs for contributing to this challenging, but necessary work for the body of Christ!
Am O1 Stars Out Of 5Not where hope is foundNovember 3, 2020Am OQuality: 3Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This is a book that sparks division, though the author is trying to help, she dies more harm then good. Our identity is found in Christ as Christians, that is our common ground and the only way to reconcile our differences. Restoration belongs in Christ, not in colors of skin. Racism needs to be a topic that Christians will address, but this book is not the way to do it. Having conversations with fellow Christians of different walks of life, listening to one another fully, and through the lens of the gospel, will have a massive impact.
CPT1 Stars Out Of 5Incompatible with the gospel of JesusSeptember 30, 2020CPTPlease use wisdom and discernment when reading this book. It is full of secular ideology that is damaging to the church and to relationships in it.
We are brothers and sisters in Christ, and that is where our identity is found. We are not to carry guilt or shame based on ancestry or skin color.
Racism is a sin that needs to be addressed, but this is not the way to do it.
