How to Fight Racism: Courageous Christianity and the Journey Toward Racial Justice
Add To Cart
Racism is pervasive in today's world, and many are complicit in the failure to confront its evils. Jemar Tisby, author of the award-winning The Color of Compromise, believes we need to move beyond mere discussions about racism and begin equipping people with the practical tools to fight against it.
How to Fight Racism is a handbook for pursuing racial justice with hands-on suggestions bolstered by real-world examples of change. Tisby offers an array of actionable items to confront racism in our relationships and in everyday life through a simple framework--the A.R.C. Of Racial Justice--that helps readers consistently interrogate their own actions and maintain a consistent posture of anti-racist action. This book is for anyone who believes it is time to stop compromising with racism and courageously confront it.
Tisby roots the ultimate solution to racism in the Christian faith as we embrace the implications of what Jesus taught his followers. Beginning in the church, he provides an opportunity to be part of the solution and suggests that the application of these principles can offer us hope that will transform our nation and the world. Tisby encourages us to reject passivity and become active participants in the struggle for human dignity across racial and ethnic lines. Readers of the book will come away with a clear model for how to think about race in productive ways and a compelling call to dismantle a social hierarchy long stratified by skin color.

'Those recently awakened or reawakened to the need to pursue racial justice who find themselves wondering 'What's next?' will find the answer here. With authority, clarity, and compassion, Tisby invites readers of all races to join in a transformative journey of learning and doing, a journey marked by both resilience and hope.

'Jemar Tisby is a sociohistorical scholar par excellence! And he is committed to the advancement of the good news, for all. Tisby offers an unvarnished, biblical approach to antiracist work--one rooted in sound research, biblical knowledge, and a clear-eyed perspective on how white supremacy has made the good news bad news for so many. This is a critically important combination.' -- KORIE EDWARDS, associate professor of sociology, Ohio State University
'Jemar Tisby reshaped the conversation about race for white Christians with his bestselling, The Color of Compromise. Thousands of us came to see the way that our faith had been co-opted by the wicked ideology that sustains racism, and we then became desperate for concrete ideas to break the chains of this unholy alliance. In How To Fight Racism, Jemar responds to that very need. In this book, Jemar uses a very accessible framework of ARC (awareness, reconciliation, and commitment) to provide a road map for moving forward. You can be certain that you will walk away from this wonderful book feeling armed with a litany of practical tools for taking the next steps to confront and challenge this systemic and historic evil.' -- DANIEL HILL, pastor, author of White Awake and White Lies
'In this clear-eyed and practical book, Jemar Tisby brings his scholarship, faith, and humanity to the inescapable challenges of racial injustice in America. How to fight Racism is a timely gift and a biblical challenge. Read it, share it, teach it, live it!' -- CHARLES MARSH, Commonwealth Professor of Religious Studies, University of Virginia, author of The Beloved Community
'With clarity and conviction, Jemar lays the path for anyone seeking to uproot racism in their lives, their families, their congregations, or any sphere of influence. Every leader needs this book!' -- NICOLE MASSIE MARTIN, DMin, assistant professor of ministry and leadership development, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
'The value of this book is that it is more than 'how-to' instructions aimed at transforming society. This book is also an invitation to a journey of love. To some that will be disappointing; the author invites you to take that up with Jesus.' -- BILL PANNELL, professor emeritus of preaching, Fuller Theological Seminary
'This book is for people of faith who are ready to fight racism not merely by educating ourselves but by moving towards courageous action in diverse community. Jemar's work at the intersection of awareness, relationships, and commitment will serve the church as we seek to be reconciled, justice-oriented people. The varied narratives and concrete applications Jemar shares are in line with the integrity he has as a leader who is engaged in this multiethnic civil rights moment.' -- SANDRA MARIA VAN OPSTAL, executive director of Chasing Justice
'How to Fight Racism by Jemar Tisby has come at a perfect moment for the church. While racism in America is a highly complex, multilayered reality with a variety of definitions, lived experiences, and proposed solutions, the church of Jesus Christ stands as the only viable hope for ending racism. Even though the church has a mixed record when it comes to racism, it is our fight! If you're new to the fight or could benefit from a concrete road map to a more just and merciful society, this beautiful book makes the complex doable.' -- KAY WARREN, cofounder, Saddleback Church
