More and more white Christians are awakening to the pervasive bias for white culture, ideas, and actions that shape every aspect of society. Many are eager to resist white supremacy and fight for racial equality--but what steps can be taken to make good, lasting change? Pastor Daniel Hill offers White Lies, a thoughtful, practical guide for confronting and dismantling white supremacy and promoting racial justice in healthy, effective ways.
White supremacy presents one of the greatest threats to the soul of our nation and the Kingdom of God--but we can do something about it. Drawn from more than twenty years working in cross-cultural communities and learning from some of the greatest leaders of color, pastor and racial equality advocate Daniel Hill offers clarity on what white supremacy is and how it functions.
In this practical and illuminating guide, Hill provides nine practices rooted in Scripture that will position you to be an active supporter of inclusion, equality, and racial harmony. With stories, studies, and examples from his own journey, Hill will show you:
How to get free of the impact of white supremacy individually and recognize it at work systematically How to talk about race in an intelligent and respectful way How to recognize which strategies are helpful and which are harmful
We cannot experience holistic justice without confronting and dismantling white supremacy. But as we follow Jesus--the one who is supreme over all things--into undoing false power systems, we will become better advocates of the liberating and unconditional love God extends to us all.
Hill has been a pastor with the Axis ministry for Generation X at Willow Creek Community Church. During 2003 he is leading a team of more than thirty "church planters" to create a new church in the city of Chicago, River City Community Church. C
