In The Colorful Image of God, Katherine B. Martin, a White woman who has spent most of her career working in social justice, shares her spiritual awakening to race and racism that started more than a decade ago. Combining vulnerable anecdotes with academic and historical teaching, she highlights the disconnect between the Christian belief of imago Dei and the injustices that Black people, and other People of Color, face today. By normalizing bias through personal stories, Katherine gently calls other White Christians into what can be intimidating conversations in order to inspire them to play a bigger role in uprooting racial injustice. In her words, "I want our love for God, rooted in his great love for us, to propel us to fight for the rights of others like our very lives depend on it."
"As our nation continues to wrestle with issues of race, justice and equity, new voices are needed to enhance and deepen the conversation. Rooted in a Christian world-view, Katherine's Colorful Image of God offers a personal, practical and hopeful perspective to equip readers in becoming agents of transformation, reconciliation and lasting societal change."
