—Patricia Raybon, Author, My First White Friend and the One Year God's Great Blessings Devotional

If the only thing we have in common between us is the gospel, that is enough. If the word of God is the only heritage we share, that is sufficient. How liberating is that truth! This is what this book is about. I loved the way these precious women, from different nations and backgrounds, are faithfully and beautifully lifting up what will last and unite us forever: the word of God.

—Betsy Gomez, Speaker; Blogger; Media Manager, Aviva Nuestros Corazones (Revive Our Hearts Hispanic Outreach)

With meticulous attention to detail, God created a diverse human race. He took into account a vast array of variables to include race, gender, and culture. These differences are not to be ignored or dismissed when reading Scripture; they are to be acknowledged and celebrated. This book provides a lens through which we can view the experiences of Christian women of color as they engage with God. It beautifully captures and elevates narratives that are desperately needed for women of color and the entire body of Christ.

—Kia Stephens, Founder, The Father Swap Blog

There’s something indescribably beautiful about Bible study done together in community. This book is an example of that. These women, some of the brightest Christian women of today, bless us with a book filled with insight, reflection, and conversation. This book will help you read your Bible better, and love our God more wholeheartedly.

—Russell Moore, President, The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention
