    i just finished my advanced copy of this book and it was a convicting read. Latasha Morrison lays out perfectly the crucial steps to how we as a collective can work towards racial reconciliation and how no matter ethnicity we are, we are all in God's image. Her honesty about the need to lament with those that have suffered at the hand of racism in order to truly heal this country is refreshing. Reconciliation is more than just putting a bandage on an issue. It is digging deep down to clean out what is causing the hurt and putting the balm of forgiveness and making change to not caise future hurt and making the reparations to truly heal.

    I highly recommend this to all churches. It's a must read

    This is an important read for the church in America.

    Each chapter brought anticipation and lament, smiles and tears, and my heart has left these pages so challenged to take the next steps as a bridge builder for racial reconciliation. All humanity bears God's image, and we need to truly listen and acknowledge the experiences of our brothers and sisters of color. This book encouraged me to not only re-visit how I have learned history and dig into my own ancestry, but also to change the lens in which I read and interpret scripture. I have so much still to learn on this journey, but I promise it is worth it all to strive to see the Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven. This book stretches me in the best of ways and I encourage you to join me and order it today!

    I like to read, a lot. And sometimes I come across a book that should be on pretty much everyone's "must read" list. Be the Bridge: Pursuing God's Heart for Racial Reconciliation by Latasha Morrison (Waterbrook, 2019) is one of those books. If you haven't done so yet, preorder it so that it will be in your mailbox when it releases this fall (expected to release on Oct 15).

    This book is the very personal journey, the very personal story of the author. Ms Morrison grew up hearing a version of history that didn't seem fair, but it was history. And then came the day when, in a college class, she heard the unredacted version of what had really happened to her ancestors, and thousands of others who were bought and sold as slaves. The story of how people had looked down on them and tried to strip their humanity from them. But beyond that, she heard the story of proud civilizations, of kings and queens, and prospering cultures and communities. And the discomfort that she felt that day propelled her into a place where she could share the truth of what happened, and then put it into perspective: what does God think, and how can we get back to what it was supposed to be like.

    This book is the story of how the organization Be the Bridge came to be, of how a small group who met to discuss reconciliation has branched out and is now over 1000 groups across 5 countries. Groups of people who serve as ambassadors for racial reconciliation.

    Morrison writes from the heart about the lessons she has learned, and how they have impacted her. She shares episodes from her life, and she leads the reader into a new understanding of the story of slavery in this country, and hopefully how the age-old custom of "the victor writes the history books" is not, nor has it ever been, fair to subsequent generations.

    At level it seems that Morrison understands that the past is the past and can't be changed. But she also knows that there is work to be done today so that the injustices of the past don't have to be carried any further into the future. If I can put into practice even a small part of what I have learned from this book, I will be a better person, and the world will be a brighter place for all of humanitypeople created in the image of God, and really what more can we ask for than to be listening to and obeying God as he tells us how to show that we love Him: by loving others.

    I received an uncorrected proof copy of this book as a member of the launch team.

    5/5
