Did you know that the Bible has a great deal to say about ethnicity?

Through the Bible, God shapes the way we engage with ethnicity. A biblical perspective on ethnicity gives us confidence to explore our own ethnic identities.

In this eight-session LifeGuide Bible Study, Steve Tamayo takes us through passages that open us up to difficult yet important conversations about race, culture, and ethnicity. If ethnicity is a gift from God, engaging this material may deeply transform the way we interact with family, friends, and enemies.

For over three decades LifeGuide Bible Studies have provided solid biblical content and raised thought-provoking questions—making for a one-of-a-kind Bible study experience for individuals and groups. This series has more than 130 titles on Old and New Testament books, character studies, and topical studies.

—Sandra Maria Van Opstal, executive director of Cashing Justice

We live in a world of racial division, but God’s answer isn’t to be colorblind. To participate in God’s justice and reconciliation, we need to understand how our ethnic identity fits in to the bigger story. This Bible study helpfully and skillfully gives us the start we need to help us receive and redeem our ethnic identities in Jesus’ name and be a part of the healing that only the kingdom of God can bring!

—James Choung, coauthor of Longing for Revival

I first learned that the Bible has a lot to say about ethnicity when I was in college. That has shaped my life and ministry for the past thirty years. Please give the same gift to those around you. This guide can help you and your small group dig into important biblical passages using these thoughtful questions, plus there are helpful leader’s notes in the back.

—Doug Schaupp, national director of evangelism, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA
