Bloodlines is a Good Book

Thanks to Lit!, I read Piper's newest book, Bloodlines, more carefully and deliberately than any book in recent memory. This is a good and helpful book about how the gospel severs the root of racism. I'll let Piper summarize for you what the book is about and hope that you will take this recommendation to get and read this book.

"The aim of this book has been to encourage you to pursue Christ-exalting, gospel-driven racial and ethnic diversity and harmony--especially in the family of God, the church of Jesus Christ. I have tried to argue from Scripture that the blood of Christ was shed for this. It is not first a social issue, but a blood issue. The bloodline of Christ is deeper than the bloodlines of race" (p. 227).
