“Churches remain racially segregated and are largely ineffective in addressing complex racial challenges. In The Color of Compromise, Jemar Tisby takes us back to the root of this injustice in the American church, highlighting the cultural and institutional tables we have to flip in order to bring about progress between black and white people.”
“This book provides an in-depth diagnosis for a racially divided American church and suggests ways to foster a more equitable and inclusive environment among God’s people.” Read more here.
In the last several months, Jemar Tisby’s book on the history of racism in and around the American church has become a bestseller. He is speaking to the moment we are in right now.
There is a video study version of this material, which we can watch as a group and discuss together. Would you join us?
