When people deal with colour, 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. That's gracism. Pastor David Anderson 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 honour the weaker member, Anderson presents a biblical model for showing special grace to others on the basis of colour, 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 colourblindness, gracism is an opportunity to extend God's grace to people of all backgrounds. Market/Audience Church leaders Pastors Laypeople Endorsements "A tough-minded book and clear-sighted look at what it means for Christians to 'overcome evil with good.' If metaphor is metamorphosis, the metaphor of 'gracism' will change how we do church." LEONARD SWEET, E. Stanley Jones Professor of Evangelism, The Theological School, Drew University, and Visiting Distinguished Professor, George Fox University Features and Benefits Presents a new Christian paradigm for thinking about issues of colour, class or culture Written by the pastor of one of the nation's leading multicultural churches Solid biblical exposition of 1 Corinthians 12 in an accessible, readable style Published in partnership with BridgeLeader Network
