This is such an incredibly powerful book.This book recounts the experiences of John Perkins (civil rights activist) while he was in Mississippi and Tom Tarrants III (ex-KKK member) in Alabama.The experiences, transformation and lives of these men are worth reading.Of course God plays a huge part in this!They emphasize on reconciliation (with God and with each other) being the core of the gospel.Near the end, there are practical steps on how to be a church that focuses on racial reconciliation.It slows the book down a little but it just shows how much these men want this to be a central value in American churches... and beyond.
