Characters The Color of Compromise

Review Å The Color of Compromise 102 In August of 1963 Martin Luther King Jr delivered his famous I Have a Dream speech calling on all Americans to view others not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character Yet King included another powerful word one that is often overlooked Warning against the tranuilizing drug of gradualism King emphasized the fierce urgency of now the need to resist the status uo and take immediate actionKing's call to action first issued over fifty years ago is relevant for the church. A very painful and important read

Review Å The Color of Compromise 102 In America today Churches remain racially segregated and are largely ineffective in addressing complex racial challenges In The Color of Compromise Jemar Tisby takes us back to the root of this injustice in the American church highlighting the cultural and institutional tables we have to flip in order to bring about progress between black and white peopleTisby provides a uniue survey of American Christianity's racial past revealing the concrete and chilling ways people of faith have worked. I have been following Jemar Tisby s work for a couple of years now and have been eagerly anticipating the release of his new book The Color of Compromise so when calls went out for advance readers I raised my hand high I ve been digesting the book slowly for a few weeks and here is what most amazes me I have been reading and studying America s racial past for a while now but this specific history of the American church s leading role in maintaining racism has been for the most part previously unknown to me I think that there is a part of my heart that felt that all true followers of Jesus during the colonial era were abolitionists Not true And I certainly thought that all abolitionists were free of racism Also not trueI thought that white churches during the Civil Rights Movement were either supportive or silent but I was surprised to discover that segregation was both preached from the pulpit and used as a core founding principle for the Religious Right It was not abortion that bound the Moral Majority together but rather move to establish private schools in order flee integrated onesUnderstanding the ways that racism has evolved since the slavery has repeatedly brought me to my knees in lament Reading that the church and many Christian leaders have lent their overwhelming support to that evolution is a whole new level of devastating I read A LOT of history because I think that it s important The parts of our history that we don t know or the stories we sweep under the carpet are the bits that come back to bite us Also reading history keeps me from naively believing the many false narratives that pervade our thinking about The Land of the FreeAnd so it follows that for a Christian reading and knowing the history of the American church s complicity in maintaining a racist society is the only way to begin to break the cycle of that complicityIt s been a long sad slog of complicity but Jemar Tisby graciously tells it under 300 pages stating himself that it is a historical survey rather than a comprehensive treatment Also he reminds us from the very beginning that it is his love of the church that compels him to tell this truth He is not writing from the perspective of someone who written off the church but as someone who wants to see a better day in the American church He maintains hope that we can still seek unity across racial and ethnic lines that we can still see God s kingdom come But first like the people of Israel who mourned when Ezra read them the word they had forgotten and forsaken we have some reckoning to do We cannot gloss over the sins of the past or we will continue to allow their subtle forms in the present Jemar closes the book with a chapter full of practical ways to address current racial injustice in America because when we know how hard those who have gone before us have worked to erect racial barriers surely we will want to know how to do the work of taking them down Here s a paragraph from the book that will continue to inspire and admonish me in the days aheadAlthough our eternal peace is secure a diverse but unified body of Christ will only come through struggle in this life A survey of the history of racism and the church shows that the story is worse than most imagine Christianity in America has been tied to the fallacy fo white supremacy for hundreds of years European colonists brought with them the ideas of white superiority and paternalism toward darker skinned people On this sandy foundation they erected a society and religion that could only survive through the subjugation of people of color Minor repairs by the weekend warrior racial reconcilers won t fix a flawed foundation The church needs the Carpenter from Nazareth to deconstruct the house that racism built and remake it into a house for all nations Amen

Review Å The Color of Compromise 102 Against racial justice Understanding our racial history sets the stage for solutions but until we understand the depth of the malady we won't fully embrace the aggressive treatment it reuires Given the centuries of Christian compromise with bigotry believers today must be prepared to tear down old structures and build up new ones This book provides an in depth diagnosis for a racially divided American church and suggests ways to foster a euitable and inclusive environment among God's people. I honestly don t know how to properly review this book and I ve been trying to find words to describe what I just read Here is my pitiful attempt OVERVIEW I remember when I first read Stamped from the Beginning The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America I was horrified I knew some of racism in some of its blatant forms KKK etc but didn t grasp racist ideas and the influence power and history they hold While Ibram Kendi s book covered religion I longed for a Christian companion book that could come aside Kendi s work among others to talk about the racist ideas and the complicity with racism that the church has participated in This is that book in many ways Tisby gives the reader a short general survey of the church s complicity a keyword in this book with racism By the end Tisby gives some practical advice on how to begin fixing these problems which I found personally helpful THE GOOD This book left me speechless It s a really good and well structured book Tisby also states in the beginning that due to the large swatch of history and the shortness of the book he only covers certain events people and ideas within these pages It s almost a primer for a longer study But this primer will wreck you After reading this book I wonder how as the American church we are still using the exact same words and thoughts that we were using during slavery and Jim Crow times I know the reason we re still racist Whenever I ve talked to people face to face about racism and racial reconciliation I often get the same few comments or uestions Everyone is eual now Slavery is gone and the Civil Rights era has past We re a post racial society now That s social marxism or generic terms like that Ok so what should we do What do they wantTisby through history and present events eviscerates these comments and uestions Honestly after reading this book I don t know how anyone without willing denying the truth could keep saying or asking the same things Tisby is clear and pointed He doesn t beat around the bush In fact when he gets to our present timehistory 1950 2018 he brings the fire I ve watched the racial reconciliation movement in person and online and Tisby and his colleagues have been subject to much hatred false facts claims of heresy and turning away from the gospel among many other hateful things These people made one big mistake among manyThey tweeted Jemar Tisby wrote a bookIt s not revenge or a call out Tisby writes facts the histories and the documented conversations of many racist people that are still alive and working From Bob Jones University to the Graham family I think he handled Billy Graham masterfully From Phil Johnson to the SBC Tisby doesn t hold back showing how the church is still complicit in racismAgain I found the final chapters very helpful He gives good and hard practical information to combat racism and to grow into being an anti racist THE CHALLENGES I don t really have any problems with the book If anything I wish it was longer so it could be detailed There were moments where I wish he talked about a situation but I understand the purpose of a general historical surveyI do wish for a book that focused on all forms of racism in America but 1 I don t think a singular person could write that book and 2 I again understand the focus and restrictions the author takes I will need to read this book again and again Until current anti social justice warriors start writing books showing how the words and arguments they use don t come from racists then I m not sure they have a leg to stand on Anyone can tweet Few have the courage persistence to research and write something that will endure than 16 hours Sadly most of them won t even take the time to read this book5 stars Side note to my Reformed followers How many books do we have to read before we realize that there are certain beliefs and connections in our reformed theology that allow for abusers and racists to stay hidden and thrive
