Reviews - What do customers think about What Color Is Your God?: Multicultural Education in the Church (BridgePoint Books)?
Multicultural Ministry Jul 31, 2007
As the subtitle suggests, "What Color Is Your God" educates pastors in foundational cultural understanding. Covering ethnic groups in America, this primer shows church leaders how to value cultural differences. It also highlights trans-cultural biblical principles and probes how various cultures apply or misapply these eternal principles in daily life.
Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction , Soul Physicians, and Spiritual Friends.

Great Ministry Tool for 21st Century May 19, 2002
I bought a copy of this book used a few years back. It was perhaps the best book I ever found in a discount bin. I work in cross-cultural ministry, mostly with Asian Americans. This book was very helpful to me in the work that I do. It covers most of the races that are currenly in America and covers the strengths and faults that are in each of them. This book also tells what must be done to present the gospel to each of them without changing their ethnic culture. I think this feature of the book is excellent because far too often white America thinks that when minority races get saved, they must adopt "White Values." Not true! Each ethnic group in the world that has Christians celebrate Jesus in a way that is unique to their own culture. When we evangelize other groups outside of our own culture, when should remember this. I'd call this book a must for all pastors, evangelists, and other Christian leaders of all levels in America.
