The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the American Church?s Complicity in Racism

by Tisby, Jemar (Author), Moore, Lecrae (Author)

ISBN: 9780310113607

The Color of Compromise takes readers on a historical journey from America's early colonial days, through slavery and the Civil War, the tragedy of Jim Crow laws, the struggles of the Civil Rights era, up to today's Black Lives Matter movement.

Author Jemar Tisby reveals the obvious--and the much deeper, well-hidden--roots of sustained injustice in the American church, highlighting the cultural and institutional tables that need to be turned in order to bring about real and lasting progress between black and white people. Through a story-driven survey of American Christianity's racial past, he exposes the concrete and chilling ways people of faith have actively worked against racial justice, as well as the deafening silence of racial moderates.

Tisby does more than diagnose the problem, however. He charts a path forward with intriguing ideas that further the conversation as he challenges us to reverse these patterns and systems of complicity with bold, courageous, and immediate action. Random House Blue Omni, Spring 2020
