Randy Woodley, a Keetowah Cherokee, casts a biblical, multiethnic vision for people of every nation, tribe and tongue. He carefully unpacks how Christians should think about racial and cultural identity, demonstrating that ethnically diverse communities have always been God's intent for his people. Woodley gives practical insights for how we can relate to one another with sensitivity, contextualize the gospel, combat the subtleties of racism, and honor one another's unique contributions to church and society. Along the way, he reckons with difficult challenges from our racially painful history and offers hope for healing and restoration.
With profound wisdom from his own Native American heritage and experience, Woodley's voice adds a distinctive perspective to contemporary discussions of racial reconciliation and multiethnicity. Here is a biblical vision for unity in diversity.
"And Randy gives us more than mere vision; he lays out practical steps to help us reach diversity without division, reconciliation without recrimination, restitution without retribution--all in the healing Spirit of Christ's love! I pray that Randy's work will move the hearts of millions as a restorer of a godly dream and a 'repairer of the breach' in our land (and the entire world's) torn and tormented social fabric."
"It is good to read the work of a man who knows that getting along is not compromise that reduces all to less, but the laying down of one life for one another within the cultural context of each, so that every man is appreciated, met and enabled to become his own glory in the kaleidoscope of beauty that God, who loves variety, is creating. What Randy teaches is vital if we are to reveal Jesus to the hungry and usher in the end times."
"With his depth of learning (I've seen his library!), lived pastoral experience and reputation for integrity in white-Native reconciliation, Randy is the right person to communicate this vision. This book conveys the love vision of God's heart as expressed through a Cherokee soul."
