I just read a couple of good books in the last week. The book GRACISM by David Anderson is pictured above. The author defines gracism as the positive extension of favor on other humans based on color, class or culture. It is a stimulating read for those who feel that the church is called to be a part of the solution to the race problems that still exist in our society. It is a simple read as well.
The book JESUS FOR PRESIDENT by Shane Clairborne and Chris Haw was a bit longer, but with many more challenges. It is a call to US Christians to look at how Jesus should affect our citizenship. In the intro it says "too often the patriotic values of pride and strength triumph over the spiritual virtues of humility, gentleness, and sacrificial love".
This book will have you evaluating your worldview. It is definitely worth reading if only for the fact that it is different than most messages that we hear today. Read this if you want to be challenged in your current belief system. I would encourage you to read it with a discerning eye as well and not just swallow everything as true.
Has anyone else read either of these books and have thoughts to share? What good books have you read lately that you would like to refer?
