WE RAISE BOOK CLUB
We seek to be continually learning about the issues our communities are facing in order to serve those around us. The We Raise Book Club reflects our commitment to raising up issues and leaders. Regularly, our book club will feature and give away copies of books we find relevant to our focus areas.
PLEASE NOTE: We acknowledge that there are a wide variety of opinions and responses to the issues our communities are facing. We believe that a posture of learning requires an open mind and a willingness to engage with ideas and opinions different from your own. While our team does have criteria for featured books, inclusion of a book in the We Raise Book Club does not imply endorsement of the author or their opinions.
In an era where we seem to be increasingly divided along racial lines, many are hesitant to step into the gap, fearful of saying or doing the wrong thing. At times the silence, particularly within the church, seems deafening.
But change begins with an honest conversation among a group of Christians willing to give a voice to unspoken hurts, hidden fears, and mounting tensions. These ongoing dialogues have formed the foundation of a global movement called Be the Bridge—a nonprofit organization whose goal is to equip the church to have a distinctive and transformative response to racism and racial division.
In this perspective-shifting book, founder Latasha Morrison shows how you can participate in this incredible work and replicate it in your own community. With conviction and grace, she examines the historical complexities of racism. She expertly applies biblical principles, such as lamentation, confession, and forgiveness, to lay the framework for restoration.
Along with prayers, discussion questions, and other resources to enhance group engagement, Be the Bridge presents a compelling vision of what it means for every follower of Jesus to become a bridge builder—committed to pursuing justice and racial unity in light of the gospel.
