Overview

Sharing from his own experiences growing up in the segregated South, Pastor John Piper thoughtfully exposes the unremitting problem of racism. Instead of turning to organizations, education, famous personalities, or government programs to address racial strife, Piper reveals the definitive source of hope—teaching how the good news about Jesus Christ actively undermines the sins that feed racial strife, and leads to a many-colored and many-cultured kingdom of God.

In Bloodlines readers will learn to pursue ethnic harmony from a biblical perspective. Piper also helps readers understand how to relate to others despite differences and how to take part in the bloodline of Jesus that is comprised of “every tongue, tribe, and nation.”
