Reviews - What do customers think about Being White: Finding Our Place in a Multiethnic World?

Loved it!!  Mar 20, 2007
As a white woman, I really apreciated this book. It is a great way for white people to dive into the arena of racial reconciliation.

I also loved that it is written by a man and a woman, that doesn't happen very often.
 
an improbably good book  Nov 1, 2005
We desperately need this book. Paula and Doug have done the improbable: they've issued a call to whites that is not only comprehensive and specific and scriptural, it is utterly full of both grace and truth. I am grateful for this book both as a missionary who will use it often on college campuses and as a white man wanting to find my place in this wonderfully multiethnic world.
 
"Challenging and Inspiring"  Oct 31, 2005
"Being White provides testimony that is as challenging as it is inspiring. Unlike the cover illustration that shows a white jigsaw piece at a safe distance from the other interlocking colored pieces, Paula Harris and Douglas Schaupp have placed themselves right in the picture. They each have experience of a crosscultural marriage, and they write from their involvement with people of many ethnicities with candor, humility and discernment. They are prepared to make themselves vulnerable in telling the stories of their struggles and of the rewards of seeing understanding grow, barriers tumble and trust building to the point that relationships are mutually enriching. They challenge their readers to share their experience."
Eddie Gibbs, Professor of Church Growth, School of World Mission, Fuller Theological Seminary
 
"A wonderful resource"  Oct 31, 2005
"Paula's and Doug's personal stories and practical illustrations challenge us without overwhelming us with unachievable ideals. They advocate humility but never leave us feeling that we have nothing to offer. They exhort us to be responsible in racial healing without burying us in paralyzing guilt.
The authors have presented us white folks with a wonderful resource to help us discover where we 'fit' and how we can grow in the changing ethnic context of our lives."
*Paul Borthwick, Senior Consultant, Development Associates International*
 
A Seminary Professor's Perspective--School of Intercultural Studies  Oct 28, 2005
Paula Harris and Doug Schaupp are onto something big. Their personal experiences in cross-ethnic relationships have led them to discover a major paradigm for how God shapes people to understand and experience others who differ from themselves racially and culturally. They have identified five stages involved in the important process of learning to adjust to others in our multiethnic world. Their concept of displacement and how it works is worth the price of the book. I am going to highly recommend this book to all my fellow professors who are teaching any kind of course dealing with crosscultural relationships. This book is a winner. God has shaped me personally as I interacted with it."
J. Robert Clinton, Professor of Leadership, School of World Mission, Fuller Theological Seminary
