I bought this book because it was recommended on Carols Whittaker's blog. While raised in a multi-cultural urban centre, I know I have a lot to learn about race relations. This book doesn't focus exclusively on race, but it broader in its scope, talking about how was insulate ourselves from people who are different, whether that be age, socio-economic status, political stance, race or even religion. He provided real stories and practical, Biblical perspectives on how to break down our own fears and actually make friends with people who are different than us, without an agenda, yet through the love of Christ. It really convicted me that my Christian bubble - which is so easy to stay in when there's just so many of us! - is un-Christlike. I had thought it would talk more about race, but the diversity in its scope has made me realize the issue is greater (at least in my life) than just race. Very challenging.
