Product Description

Miles McPherson, senior pastor of the Rock Church in San Diego, addresses a serious problem in America today: radical division. It’s a topic many have shied away from for fear of asking the wrong question or saying the wrong thing. Some are oblivious to the impact racism has, while others pretend it doesn’t exist or choose to ignore it completely.

Even the church has been affected by racial division, with Sunday now being the most segregated day of each week. Christians, who are called to love and honor their neighbors, have fallen into culture’s trap by siding with one group against another: Us vs. them. Cops vs. protestors. Blacks vs. Whites. Racists vs. the “woke.” The lure of choosing one option over another threatens God’s plan for unity among all people.

Instead of going along with the culture, Pastor Miles directs us to pick the Third Option: honoring the priceless value of God’s image in every person we meet. He exposes common misconceptions that keep people from engaging with those of different racial and ethical backgrounds and identifies the privileges and challenges that we all face.

The Third Option challenges us to fully embrace God’s creativity and beauty, as expressed in the diversity of all people. By following the steps and praying the prayers outlined in this book, Pastor Miles teaches us how we can all become leaders in unifying our communities, our churches, and the nation.

Full of practical takeaways and exercises to help us better understand every perspective and point of view, The Third Option inspires, encourages, and equips us all to make a commitment to loving all our neighbors equally – starting with ourselves.

Editorial Reviews

"A discussion about race that we desperately need... a must read."
"This is a landmark book, offering  a compelling vision for the great issue of our day. Miles helps us to see God’s glory and the beauty of his image in everyone we meet.  Read this book, then buy copies for all your friends. This message could change everything."

 
"Every now and then you come across a book that feels like it has trail-blazed new ground. The Third Option is one of those books. Miles McPherson’s experience as a multiracial pastor has informed this profound look into racism and offers new insight into the biblical way forward. A must-read."
"The most profound message on reconciliation and healing that I have heard. It is a message that needs to be echoed throughout the world... This is a moment and a movement that you have to be a part of!"
"The Third Option reveals God’s way for bridging the racial divide: honoring the image of God placed in each of us. Pastor Miles' words will encourage you with a new compassion and new understanding of the heart of God for all people and equip you with the tools to help bring about change." 
"Every believer who wants to follow Christ’s example and to love our neighbors as ourselves must read this book."
"In a time where our country seems more divided racially and politically than at any other in recent history, we need a voice of reason to bring us to a place of understanding.  I believe that Miles McPherson is that voice... I can't stress enough how important this work is and hope that it becomes a central part of the conversation going forward. Get the book, devour the concepts and be part of the change."
"The Third Option is exactly what we need to be reminded of. This is how JESUS wants us to live. Rather than separate ourselves by racism, we need to be one race united by love. We are all one people, one human world, all equal." 
"A powerful and inspirational book. Chock full of stories, anecdotes, and wisdom that helps readers to build bridges across the great divides of race and ethnicity."
"The Third Option will not just inspire you; it will equip you with the necessary tools to advance, facilitate, and usher in a spirit of unity.  You will not just be blessed, you will be transformed." 
"The Third Option forges the way forward for the Church; Christians armed with compassion, a new motivation, and a new understanding of the heart of God."
