Editorial Reviews

  • “…both a great new word and a fresh way to approach our racial and cultural divisions in the church—and in life. I’m hoping a huge audience will read this book and discover the heart and passion of one of the racial reconciliation movement’s most dynamic young leaders.” —Edward Gilbreath, author of Reconciliation Blues: A Black Evangelical’s Inside View of White Chrisianity
  • “…a powerful voice of hope…This book provides a new—and the only—‘ism’ that can heal the deep wounds of racism.” —Donald T. Floyd, Jr., President and CEO, National 4-H Council
  • “What a beautiful—and needed!—book…I can’t imagine anyone reading this book without being marked for life as an agent of gracism, which may be the best synonym for reconciliation ever invented.” —Brian D. McLaren, Author and Activist

About the Book
''The parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor.'' I CORINTHIANS 12:23.... When people deal with color, class or culture in a negative way, that's racism. But the answer is not to ignore differences as if they don't matter. Instead, we can focus on diversity in a positive way, as an opportunity to show God's favor to others. That's gracism. David Anderson, pastor of one of the most vibrant multicultural churches in America, responds to prejudice and injustice with the principle of gracism-radical inclusion for the marginalized and excluded. Building on the apostle Paul's exhortations in 1 Corinthians 12 to honor the weaker member, Anderson presents a biblical model for showing special grace to others on the basis of color, class or culture. He offers seven sayings of the gracist with practical examples for building bridges and including others. A Christian alternative to secular models of affirmative action or colorblindness, gracism is an opportunity to extend God's grace to people of all backgrounds.
