We are committed to biblical justice and racial equity in our community and in our nation. Our hope in providing these resources is so that we can further our collective education.
Suggestions on how to approach these resources:
With humility. Start in a posture of humility. We all have a lot to learn from each other. We purposely have offered a wide range of voices and perspectives on these topics as a way to promote a humble learning posture.
With grace. Avoid the trap of disregarding an idea or perspective because of a particular word or phrase that is being used. Words are limited in their ability to adequately capture such complicated concepts, and our use of certain words can become distorted and misunderstood over time. Let’s choose to approach vocabulary with grace and openness.
With teachability. Know that you’re not going to agree with everything you see. Salem Alliance leadership doesn’t fully endorse or agree with everything posted here. It is impossible to find human perspectives that perfectly address something as complicated as biblical justice. It is our desire to have a well-rounded and robust conversation.
With Jesus. Approach these resources prayerfully with a posture of asking Jesus, "Would you reveal in me any blindspots or ways that You want me to better reflect Your heart for all people?"
The Gospel in Color (KIDS)
This book is specifically designed so that your child can dig deep into what the Bible says about race, racism, and reconciliation.
A powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice—from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time.
The Color of Compromise
An acclaimed, timely narrative of how people of faith have historically—up to the present day—worked against racial justice. And a call for urgent action by all Christians today in response.
Be The Bridge
In this perspective-shifting book, founder Latasha Morrison shows how you can participate in the work of racial reconciliation and replicate it in your own community.
How Christians today can interact with those around them in a way that shows respect to those whose beliefs are radically different but that also remains faithful to the gospel.
