Not Your White Jesus: Following a Radical, Refugee Messiah

Westminster John Knox Press / 2018 / Paperback

Product Description

Jesus is not white. Jesus is not American. Jesus does not want to make America great. While many of us grew up looking at gleaming portraits of Jesus with blond, flowing hair and hearing sermons reaffirming that we have the answers to save a fallen world, the real Jesus—a Middle Eastern Jew preaching radical, humble, self-emptying love—calls us to a different life.

In Not Your White Jesus, Sheri Faye Rosendahl addresses the need to reexamine the true ways of Jesus that we find clearly in the red letters, enabling readers to discover what it truly means to follow the ways of Jesus in contrast to following the ways of the American Christian elite.

Editorial Reviews

"In her debut book Not Your White Jesus, Sheri Faye Rosendahl addresses where [the American church] has gone wrong and how we can emphasize the teachings of Jesus to return to a faith that, in practice, looks more like him. To be clear, she goes after not all Americans, but the visible white, conservative version that makes political noise and votes as a block. We need her message now, and her anger and frustration brings a needed spark to a conversation that too often turns toward either anonymous internet shouting or dry contemplation." —The Englewood Review of Books 


"If you are over it with the blonde haired, blue-eyed, white Jesus…



If you struggle to see the connection between Jesus and the actions of his ’followers’…



If you believe that Jesus was a badass but are having a hard time finding him in today’s world…



Look no further. Sheri Faye Rosendahl delivers that Jesus and so much more.  Not Your White Jesus will have you nodding your head and saying, ’There you are, Jesus. Welcome back. I thought I lost ya.’"



—Jerry Herships, Founder/Pastor of AfterHours Denver and Author of Last Call: From Serving Drinks to Serving Jesus




"Be moved by the passionate, heartfelt reflections of a brutally honest, refreshingly real woman who is totally devoted to following Jesus into the hard places and among those often overlooked by the church. Yes, she’s forthright and candid. Yes, she says things that will likely rub you up the wrong way. She’s just trying to be true to Jesus – the radical, brown-skinned, refugee Jesus."
—Michael Frost, author of Keep Christianity Weird, and Surprise the World!


"Dust off your hope and ditch the despair as Sheri Faye Rosendahl unleashes us to breathe deeply and love as boldly as the Jesus we follow. Not Your White Jesus challenges us to love our Palestinian, refugee, pro-choice, Muslim, marginalized brown and black neighbors, like Jesus’s reputation depends on it."



—Diana Oestreich, writer, speaker, and justice activist




"Sheri Faye Rosendahl gives those of us who follow Jesus a tremendous gift. She holds his life and words up to us like a well-lit mirror, and asks us to look closely, unflinchingly. With boldness and brutal honesty, Sheri invites we who call ourselves Christians, to decide if we're okay with what we see—or if we want to aspire to something more beautiful. I'm grateful for her courageous challenge."



—John Pavlovitz, author of A Bigger Table and Hope and Other Superpowers
