Plantation Jesus
Not long ago, most white American Christians believed that Jesus blessed slavery. God wasn't bothered by Jim Crow. Baby Jesus had white skin. Meet Plantation Jesus: a god who is comfortable with bigotry, and an idol that distorts the message of the real Savior. That false image of God is dead, right? Wrong, argue the authors of Plantation Jesus, an authoritative new book on one of the most urgent issues of our day. Through their shared passion for Jesus Christ and with an unblinking look at history, church, and pop culture, authors Skot Welch and Rick Wilson detail the manifold ways that racism damages the church's witness. Together Welch and Wilson take on common responses by white Christians to racial injustice, such as "I never owned a slave," "I don't see color; only people," and "We just need to get over it and move on." Together they call out the church's denials and dodges and evasions of race, and they invite readers to encounter the Christ of the disenfranchised. With practical resources and Spirit-filled stories, Plantation Jesus nudges readers to learn the history, acknowledge the injury, and face the truth. Only then can the church lead the way toward true reconciliation. Only then can the legacy of Plantation Jesus be replaced with the true way of Jesus Christ.

101 Ways to Enjoy the Mosaic
We¿re all born curious¿but curiosity is an easy quality to lose. It¿s too easy in the midst of our busy lives to settle into the comfortable and familiar. To become trapped in our own ideas, our own routines, our own culture. Yet when we look outside¿turn on the news or pick up the paper¿we see that ours is a world filled with a rich mosaic of cultures and new perspectives. Maybe the mosaic scares you. Maybe it invites you.101 Ways to Enjoy the Mosaic is a relaxed and reassuring guide to taking the first steps out of the rut and beginning to sample new customs, including foods, festivals and other fun, that we might miss¿sometimes because we think we aren¿t invited to attend!The experts call stepping out to enjoy all of this fun building ¿cultural competence¿¿the ability to interact effectively with people of different cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Having cultural competence does not, however, have to mean the ability to speak five languages fluently, or entail traveling the world over. In practice, cultural competence is readily available to every one of us because it is really nothing more than learning more about our neighbors, finding out what we have in common, enriching our lives with appreciation for¿and delight in¿cultural practices, traditions, and worldviews that are different from our own.Think of 101 Ways to Enjoy the Mosaic as a sort of cookbook. Here are 101 tested recipes that will expand your vision, give you new awareness, and help you to experience the other cultures that are all around you¿often right next door!For some, these recipes will feel like comfort food¿new ways to approach a rich feast they already relish; for others they will add wholly new flavors and textures to the menu.For all of us, stepping outside of our own homogeneous ruts is part of a practice of living more deliberately¿contentedly, and peacefully¿with all of our neighbors in a continually more globalized world.
