"This is a terrific book. For years, evangelicals have discussed among themselves ways to reach minority communities, without much participation by minorities themselves. This book is a gamechanger. Here, black, Asian, and Latino writers say what they most want to say to the evangelical (and specifically Reformed) community.If you are tired of the usual arguments about race, as I am, this book will wake you up with some new ideas . . . That a Reformed publisher has undertaken to publish a book like this is itself a very promising development. I urge a wide readership by all who are seeking to carry out Jesus' Great Commission."- Dr. John Frame, Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando

"Informed by personal, theological, and practical reflection, these sobering and often uncompromising essays challenge culturally dominant white evangelicals to move beyond their tribalism and embrace ethnic and racial diversity in their midst. "Wake up," these contributors are saying, "The multi-cultural future of evangelicalism is now.""- David W. Kling, Ph.D., Professor and Chair, Department of Religious Studies, University of Miami

"Never before have ethnic minorities within this "tribe" of conservative evangelicals addressed directly such explosive questions of white privilege, structural sin, unequal opportunity and the suburban cultural captivity of their churches. What I like most is that these contributors donít dwell on past pain - and there is plenty of it! Rather, this volume is about reconstructing in faith a path towards Godís sovereign vision of human community. Anyone who cares about the future of Christianity in the North America needs to read this."- John Nunes, Ph.D., President and CEO, Lutheran World Relief
