The Color of Compromise is an enlightening and compelling read, cataloging the history we either aren't aware of, or choose to ignore. Both painful and inspirational, this book reveals how the American church has worked to create and maintain racist ideas and practices. Jamar Tisby will guide you in thinking through concrete solutions for improved race relations and a racially inclusive church.
The Color of Compromise:
- Guides you through an historical, sociological, and religious journey from America's early colonial days through slavery and the Civil War
- Covers the tragedy of Jim Crow laws, the victories of the Civil Rights era, and the strides of today's Black Lives Matter movement
- Exposes the cultural and institutional tables we have to flip in order to bring about meaningful integration
- Charts a path forward to replace established patterns and systems of complicity with bold, courageous, immediate action
- Is a great read for pastors and other faith leaders, students, non-students, book clubs, small group studies, history lovers, and all lifelong learners
The Color of Compromise is not a call to shame or a platform to blame white evangelical Christians. It is a call from a place of love and a desire to fight for a more racially unified church that no longer compromises what the Bible teaches about human dignity and equality. This call is made to challenge both black and white Christians to standup now and start implementing the concrete ways Tisby outlines, all for a more equitable and inclusive environment among God's people, starting today.
