Has your child ever ran into someone of a different race or nationality, of course they have, and they most likely at some point in time either participated in, witnessed, or was verbally attacked in hateful acts a person of a different race or nationally. How do we deal with this, is this how the Bible teaches us to act. In the book God Made Me and You: Celebrating God’s Design for Ethnic Diversity, Christian rapper Shi Linne deals with these questions and gives Christ-focused answers.
It is not very often that you get to read a book by your favorite rapper. But it is also not often that your favorite rapper is also a Pastor of a church and now a accomplished author. Like his songs Linne, use scripture, which makes you feel like you are listening to a sermon in song, this book is written in the same manner. This truly helps children understand that God made all of us and that he made us different yes, but we are all made by the same God, who loved us by sending His one and only son to die for His children, and be raised from the dead to the glory of God the father.
I live in a very diverse area, both socioeconomically and racially this book has helped not only my children, but me as well to see that all people were made in the image of God but we must treat all people in that manner, the manner which Christ taught us to live.
This is a book that all families should own and read often. You will not be disappointed.
I received this work from New Growth Pres, for the purpose of an unbiased review.
