ABOUT THE BOOK
"There Can Be No Justice Without Truth. In The Color of Compromise, Jemar Tisby takes readers back to the roots of sustained racism and injustice in the American church. Filled with powerful stories and examples of American Christianity's racial past, Tisby's historical narrative highlights the obvious ways people of faith have actively worked against racial justice, as well as the complicit silence of racial moderates. Identifying the cultural and institutional tables that must be flipped to bring about progress, Tisby provides in-depth diagnosis for a racially divided American church and suggests ways to foster a more equitable and inclusive environment among God's people."
Rev. Dr. Jim Melson, facilitator, is an ordained United Methodist pastor and is Founder and Executive Director of Cornelius Corps, a ministry that focuses on the intersection of racial justice/reconciliation and spiritual formation.
