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.
HeatherinTX5 Stars Out Of 5Lean into the conversation and be transformedAugust 5, 2020HeatherinTXLatasha, a bold, yet grace-filled, voice of truth on matters of race and faith shares her own personal experiences with racism (in and out of the church) and invites the body of Christ to engage in tough but critical conversations to achieve the unity discussed in the Bible. This book is perfect for (particularly white) Christians who are ready to lean in and learn more about racial reconciliation and the role the church is to play in bringing about healing in our nation and our world.
