    Colorful Connections

    12 Questions About Race that Open Healthy Conversations


    Many conversations are happening at home and in church about difficult and timely topics--but when it comes to race, too many Christians are silent. It's time to speak up. But where do we start?

    Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith and Lori Stanley Roeleveld enter a transparent and open dialogue about race, privilege, bias, and discrimination.

    As you witness the real-time process of meaningful discussion, you'll see how these women model healthy conversations--giving voice to pain without blame, expressing anger without ridicule, and asking questions without guilt.

    These pages are filled with vulnerable personal stories, biblical teaching, conversation starters, and practical next steps. By the end, you too will be equipped to have your own colorful conversations, and find your place in healing the racial divide and bringing together the body of Christ.

    "Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith and Lori Stanley Roeleveld take the issue of race and, with incredible wisdom and surgical precision, bring together all of the different dynamics and weave them into a balanced, biblical solution." --Isaac Pitre, president of II Kings Global Network and IPM Ministries, and author of Divine DNA

    "If you only read one book this year, make it this one! . . . Colorful Connections will give you the tools to make a lasting impact on the racial relationships of future generations." --Carol Kent, speaker, founder and executive director of Speak Up Conference, and author of When I Lay My Isaac Down
