John Piper brings the light of the gospel to bear on racial issues in this groundbreaking book. Bloodlines begins with Piper's confession of his own sins and experience with racial tensions, along with how God has been transforming him and his church. He enables readers to grasp the reality and extent of racism, and then he demonstrates from Scripture how the light of the gospel penetrates the darkness of this destructive sin. The book concludes with sections on what Jesus's atoning death means for racial issues, interracial marriage, and prejudice.
With great sensitivity and compassion, along with a careful reading of the Scriptures, Piper helps readers navigate the painful landscape of racial sin, showing that in the gospel we all have a common bloodline and that through the blood of Jesus, race and ethnicity become secondary for a common people of God.

Any additional comments?
As a Black man, with a White wife, born in California, lived in Mexico, New York city and the South, there is no place i have lived as a Christian where this book and its truth are irrelevant. Now as a Black member in an almost all white church, I hope to live what this book preaches to bring the diversity Christ would want for his church.

very convincing arguments herein
John Piper is no slouch when making a case. This book is a hard read, and is entirely worth your time and effort. Every christian should probably read this, and I highly encourage everyone else to as well.
