Color-Courageous Discipleship: Follow Jesus, Dismantle Racism, and Build Beloved Community
Racism is sinful. Bringing awareness of the impacts of racism on one’s everyday practice of Christianity is a vital act of faith in these troubled times. Michelle T. Sanchez shares her passion for discipleship – teaching and embodying Christian values – and addressing racism in Color-Courageous Discipleship. Sanchez offers an invitation to evangelicals to intentionally and courageously confront racial challenges. The author notes how people of faith have always represented diverse nations. Sanchez promotes acknowledging long-held beliefs and understanding cultural lenses to confront racist ideologies. The book also features Interviews with thought leaders who share wisdom about becoming an antiracist and building a beloved community.
Reading Sanchez is an inspiration. Through Color-Courageous Discipleship , she summons Christians to overcome self-interest and a scarcity mindset to dismantle racist ideas, practices, and dynamics. Sanchez cites scripture and uses examples from Jesus’ ministry to break down complex concepts like Critical Race Theory from a Christian perspective.
Discipleship is congruent with antiracism because both require intentionality and action. Sanchez emphasizes that ignoring the impacts of racism only helps to perpetuate its harms. This is an important read for any Christian who wants to deepen the spiritual conversation around justice to work toward shalom, peace, and wholeness.
