Race is a result of God's design and not of sin. God loves diversity and sought it. Race biases are normal and come as a result of likes and dislikes; love of "the other" is to be learned. In this book, Bible stories and principles are combined with four intercultural communication skills to help develop love of the other. This book builds on what Sherwood Lingenfelter and Marvin K. Mayers developed for understanding cultural values and diversity of likes and dislikes. Those differences are normal. The problem comes from excluding the other. This book explores a step-wise approach to developing the love of the other. How the person, the leader, and the church see diversity defines the church's outreach, mission, and gospel fulfillment. Author's Own Words Book Description The Power of Love book explains how emotions and feelings were part of God's creation design from before sin entered this world. While departing from cognitive neuropsychology and the latest learning from science this seminar furthers the idea that race relations are not to be understood by sociology and science but by Bible and Christian beliefs.
If you want to learn a non-CRT (critical race theory) approach to race relations while risking being, again, convicted of the need to reach out to the other in gospel love--enter into dialogue--with the author by reading his book and let us pray together. If you want to keep it safe and your intercultural relationships as they are--in a tongue in cheek way the author advices to--stay away from this book!
