    I am grateful for Jemar Tisby and his voice, especially in a time like today where eyes are starting to open up and see how prevalent and embedded racism is in the U.S. This book is very practical and is for anyone desiring to pursue racial justice. I feel encouraged and hopeful because of his writing and motivated for the journey of fighting racism. It is written from a Christian perspective, but if you do not identify as a Christian, I think you can definitely still benefit from his words.

    Fighting racism is not just about how it changes the world - it is also about how it changes you.

    Affirming the image of God in people of all races and ethnicities requires sustained and intentional action quote from p31

    Tangible calls for action fill the pages of this book by our brother Jemar Tisby

    His ARC of Racial Justice model is clear and beneficial

    He gives reasons and ideas for each of the three areas, awareness, relationships, and commitment

    We are reminded of the biblical imperatives for love, mercy, justice, and hope throughout the book

    It is insightful, thought provoking, encouraging, and challenging

    Celebrate the truth that

    Gods fingerprints rest upon every single person without restriction

    quote from p28

    as you read this excellent book

    The work continues.

    Jemar Tisby's follow up to The Color of Compromise is timely and needed. It is for anyone on the journey of pursuing racial justice in our country with a foundation of the Christian faith. Whether you have been on this path for awhile or you have recently started, you can benefit from this book.

    I am grateful for the way Tisby inspires hope, encourages the downtrodden and weary, shoots straight with the truth, outlines tangible ways to seek racial justice (both individually and as an organization), and consistently keeps pointing the reader to Jesus. He provides opportunities for us all to engage in the work where we are, not out of guilt or shame, but because it is right and it is what we are called to do as followers of Christ.

    Wondering what to do about racism? Here's a great start

    Y'all should get yourself a copy of this book. I had the pleasure of reading an advance copy over the past few weeks. (It's not a long book, I just went through it slowly). In light of the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and others over the past year, many of you might be wondering what to do about racism. (Sadly such incidents are nothing new, but seem to have received more attention in the media than usual over the past year.)

    In this book, Jemar Tisby does a fantastic job of providing practical steps to combat racism. The title of the book starts with "how to" and it really is a how to guide. This isn't to say that you should expect it to answer all of your questions, but I think it's a great starting point and gives a number of solid suggestions on things the average person is actually capable of doing that will collectively have an impact. Each chapter includes loads of references for further reading.

    Things are addressed from a Christian perspective, but I think even people of other faiths or atheists and agnostics have something useful to gain here. For those who didn't enjoy his first book, The Color of Compromise, I think you'll find this to be something different entirely. While I enjoyed both titles, I think even those who took issue with the first will appreciate this second offering.

    Powerfully insightful book with lots of practical suggestions. A great book to help you respond to the racial events of 2020.
