Racism is a painful, complex issue, and can be challenging to explain to
children. That’s why The Gospel in Color — For Kids is written to
facilitate honest conversations about race and racial reconciliation
between kids and their parents.
With vibrant illustrations and engaging text, this book explains how a false idea of race brings about suffering and division, and why the good news of Jesus Christ brings about the reconciliation the world needs.
By providing a biblical lens for viewing race, racism, and reconciliation, The Gospel in Color helps kids understand big ideas in a highly accessible way.
A Note From the Publisher
Illustrated by Rommel Ruiz. Also available as an eBook (ISBN: 978-0-9990835-9-8).
“Considering that race and parenting are among the foremost obstacles
perplexing God’s people, it is near lunacy that our churches have almost
no gospel resources to deal with their intersectionality. Dr. Woods and
Dr. Williams are not only refusing to ignore the 'elephant in the
room,' but endeavoring to make that 'elephant' submit to the Lord Jesus
Christ. The book is readable, so as to engage the imagination of our
children. The book is relevant, so as to push back against the very
present ideas that constrict the image of God on darker skin. And the
book is rich, so as to mobilize parents to carefully give 'The Talk' —
the greater one: the one about God’s great love for humanity!"
