Just Thinking: About Ethnicity

SKU 746 Category

Just Thinking: About Ethnicity is a biblical response to the issues of “race” and social justice. It is a culturally-relevant, theologically-rich exploration into what the Word of God says about such issues and how the evangelical church should respond to the unbiblical narratives associated with them. Given that every believer in Christ is an apologist (1 Pet. 3:15), Just Thinking: About Ethnicity is a valuable addition to your repository of apologetics resources.

Commendations

Harrison and Walker offer a hard-hitting and thought-provoking rebuttal to critical race theory. It is not necessary to agree with them on every point to recognize that they show that what is often promoted as ‘anti-racism’ is in fact divisive and destructive.

Bold, brave, and biblical! As expected, Darrel and Virgil pull no punches whilst getting to the foundational issues regarding ethnicity. The question they continue to hammer home is: will we believe the Bible or sociology; biblical justice or secular social justice; God or man. This book will help the church respond to our current race-obsessed culture with truth and gospel clarity.

It is a delight to commend Just Thinking: about Ethnicity. Harrison and Walker have once again opened up the Scriptures and brought them to bear on the too-often-misunderstood concept of ethnicity. As they precisely dismantle our culture’s notion of ethnicity, they explain both how and why we are prone to think so wrongly about race, racism, skin color, and even culture itself. Perhaps the best part of Harrison and Walker’s treatment of the topic is their painstaking commitment to biblical truth. This book is very clear and helpful and will benefit the church today and in days to come.

Darrell Harrison and Virgil Walker have proven themselves to be faithful guides through the cultural storm we have all found ourselves in over the last few years. This book deals with the increasingly complex web of issues surrounding race, racism, “whiteness” and how believers should respond with both uncompromising truth and Gospel grace. This is a book I know I will return to over the years as I seek to shepherd my own congregation.

You hold in your hands spiritual dynamite. This work by Darrell Harrison and Virgil Walker is one of the most power-packed books I’ve seen in terms of fulsome engagement of the other side. No one can argue that Harrison and Walker have failed to work hard to understand woke voices. They have all the receipts; further, they know how to read them. They apply a gospel-driven biblical-theological approach to the evil ideology of wokeness. In so doing, they perform an act of profound truth-telling, but also one of real love. These men love Christ’s church, and that affection compels them to think deeply, engage extensively, and write convictionally. In a world polluted by godless views of many kinds, breathe in the pure air of Christ’s saving and uniting gospel in these pages. Lift your soul up to God, and be free of hostile systems that would take you captive (Colossians 2:8).

Few issues have wreaked more havoc in conservative evangelical churches in recent years than woke ideology, much of which is rooted in unbiblical ideas about race, ethnicity, and culture. Once conservative advocates of biblical sufficiency have capitulated to the ever-growing demands of woke ideologues who veil worn liberation theology in a thin veneer of platitudes about God’s justice. Faithful Christians in the pew have been left wondering if they’re racist when they’ve never in their lives had demeaning thoughts about someone because of their skin color or ethnic heritage. I’m so thankful for my friends Virgil and Darrell and their continued voice of biblical reason on these matters, and I pray that this book will add further light from Scripture on these important issues.
