An acclaimed, timely narrative of how people of faith have historically--up to the present day--worked against racial justice. And a call for urgent action by all Christians today in response. The Color of Compromise is both enlightening and compelling, telling a history we either ignore or just don't know. Equal parts painful and inspirational, it details how the American church has helped create and maintain racist ideas and practices. You will be guided in thinking through concrete solutions for improved race relations and a racially inclusive church. The Color of Compromise: Takes you on a historical, sociological, and religious journey: from America's early colonial days through slavery and the Civil War Covers the tragedy of Jim Crow laws, the victories of the Civil Rights era, and the strides of today's Black Lives Matter movement Reveals the cultural and institutional tables we have to flip in order to bring about meaningful integration Charts a path forward to replace established patterns and systems of complicity with bold, courageous, immediate action Is a perfect book for pastors and other faith leaders, students, non-students, book clubs, small group studies, history lovers, and all lifelong learners The Color of Compromise is not a call to shame or a platform to blame white evangelical Christians. It is a call from a place of love and desire to fight for a more racially unified church that no longer compromises what the Bible teaches about human dignity and equality. A call that challenges black and white Christians alike to standup now and begin implementing the concrete ways Tisby outlines, all for a more equitable and inclusive environment among God's people.

A powerful survey of history and action that should be required reading. ( )

The book popped up at my local library and I thought it wounded like an interesting read. I am not very familiar with the institution of the church in the United States but there was no reason why to think that in itself it was free from racism. I was curious as to what the author might have to say.

The book is basically a history of the church and religion in the United States, from its earliest days before we know it as the "United States" through the major events: Revolutionary War, Civil War, Jim Crow, etc. How the church and religious leaders remained complicit in perpetuating racism (yes, despite the actions of certain actors and groups, etc.) as well as how many simply chose to actively perpetuate racism.

There is value in the book if you don't know about it and want to learn more, but overall I found the book extremely dull. Admittedly books that deal with religion, the church, etc. are never really big for me as a reader and this was more of the same. I did not know details, specific instances, etc. but wasn't particularly surprised, either.

I would also say that the negative reviews do, in their own way, also tell you what this book does. Sadly, despite all the evidence author Tisby lays out of the reader, you can still see people in completely and total denial about racism in the church because, well, they don't like what Tisby said.

This book ultimately wasn't for me at all but there are definitely people who need to read and digest it. Library borrow was best but for the right person or purpose it would be a good purchase for reference. ( )

Introductory survey of the Christian church in America and how much white supremacy was interwoven in with theology and everyday practice. It was very well written and a solid introduction.

I think I was expecting a lot more detail and more primary sources rather than a survey which briefly covered hundreds of years. For comparison, Kendi's Stamped from the Beginning clocks in at 608 pages. I would have loved to read 600 pages from Tisby as the 250 pages we got seemed to be too little. Here's to another Tisby history book!

The later chapters have a more recent context so it was easier to access and I especially appreciate how he contrasted Billy Graham and Martin Luther King, Jr. as it is stark how differently the white Christian response was to Black suffering during the civil rights movement.

A good conversation starter and a great jumping off point into deeper research. ( )
