Race & Ethnicity Resources

We hope and pray that the following links, article, books, and videos will be a help to you! Please keep in mind a recommendation is not an endorsement of every idea expressed by an author or speaker. Apart from God’s word, all other books are fallible because they’re written by imperfect authors. God charges all of us (Acts 17:11) to measure everything according to Scripture and determine if it is true; consistent with His word. The most dangerous resources are not those which we may disagree with due to skepticism with the author, its title or content. A book, article, or video is by far more dangerous if we lower our discernment filter when we’re  a fan of someone or a position (1 Cor. 1:10-13, 3:1-9) 

Referring to Scripture, John Wesley said, “Let me be homo unius libri.” – a man of one book. It wasn’t as if Wesley never read other books. Rather, any book which he did read was to drive him deeper into the word of God and increase his affections for it. May these resources do likewise.
