    “All God’s Children” by Terence Lester is a good read and encouragement in improving race relations by acknowledging problems from the past. Just over 200 pages, the author addresses many topics on the issue, including:

    – Racial reconciliation cannot be solved by conversations alone.

    – The difference between justice (lasting change) and charity (temporary generosity).

    – Importance of the church acting with compassion.

    – Understanding what minorities have experienced in past and current US history.

    – Justice and reconciliation is often mentioned in the Bible.

    – The checkered past of the Southern Baptist Convention.

    – The different types of biases and how they can be handed down from generation to generation.

    – Real and lasting change happens when human hearts are truly changed by the gospel.

    – Ways exclusion can be destructive.

    Good read and wakeup call for the church to work on racial reconciliation. Recommended.

    I was given a review copy by IVP in exchange for a fair review and appreciate the opportunity.
