Overview

An acclaimed, timely study of how people of faith have historically—up to the present day—worked against racial justice. And a call for urgent action by all Christians today in response.

The Color of Compromise is both enlightening and compelling, telling a history we either ignore or just don’t know. Equal parts painful and inspirational, it details how the American church has helped create and maintain racist ideas and practices. You will be guided in thinking through concrete solutions for improved race relations and a racially inclusive church.

In The Color of Compromise Video Study, Jemar Tisby takes us to the root of injustice in the American church. This study:

  • Takes you on a 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 movementReveals the cultural and institutional tables we have to flip in order to bring about progress between black and white peopleCharts a path forward to replace established patterns and systems of complicity with bold, courageous, immediate actionIs a perfect book 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 desire to fight for a more racially unified church that no longer compromises what the Bible teaches about human dignity and equality. A call that challenges black and white Christians alike to standup now and begin implementing the concrete ways Tisby outlines, all for a more equitable and inclusive environment among God’s people. Starting today.

    All you need to understand to determine the value of this "course" is to hear the author answer the question "who threw that bomb?" He claims "we all did". False. Such a beginning, with such an egregiously false first premise, does not bode well for the accuracy or validity of the rest of the author's work.

    There is NO color we are all of the same race, the human race, Adam and Eve were the first parents of all humans.
