Healing Racial Divides: Finding Strength in Our Diversity

ISBN: 9780827215122

“Carter’s wise work will compel white Christian readers to engage in race relations in a more up-front, graceful, and honest manner." —Publishers Weekly

While our faith calls us to unity, the hard fact remains: Christians are still tragically divided when it comes to race, even in our churches. Racism pervades our faith, our relationships, and our institutions in deep, often imperceptible ways. In Healing Racial Divides, Terrell Carter, a pastor, professor, and former police officer, unpacks the deep roots of racism in America, how it continues to be perpetuated today, and equips us with practical strategies for racial reconciliation.

Drawing from the Bible, scholarly research, and personal experience as a both a former police officer and a black pastor serving white congregations, Carter shares a bold and faithful vision for healing racial division through multicultural communities focused on relationship, listening, and learning from each other.

In Healing Racial Divides, Terrell Carter helps us:

· Understand the roots of racism in the world, the church, and ourselves
· Gain a biblical perspective on the sin of racism, as well as the biblical call to Christian unity
· Examine how racism continues to be perpetuated in America today
· Explore the concept of “whitenss” and ”white normality" and its aftereffects
· Discover a way across the divide through the creation of multi-cultural relationships, churches and communities
