Publisher's Summary

Daniel Hill will never forget the day he heard these words: "Daniel, you may be white, but don't let that lull you into thinking you have no culture. White culture is very real. In fact, when white culture comes in contact with other cultures, it almost always wins. So it would be a really good idea for you to learn about your culture."

Confused and unsettled by this encounter, Hill began a journey of understanding his own white identity. Today he is an active participant in addressing and confronting racial and systemic injustices. And in this compelling and timely book, he shows you the seven stages to expect on your own path to cultural awakening. It's crucial to understand both personal and social realities in the areas of race, culture, and identity.

This book will give you a new perspective on being white and also empower you to be an agent of reconciliation in our increasingly diverse and divided world.

Powerful Insights for White Christians

Daniel Hill has added a book that will provide significant impetus toward reducing the racial divide in America for any white person courageous enough to take his insights seriously. Thoughtful, compassionate, and compelling in its dissection of the problems that are delaying or stifling resolution of America’s racial divide.

Biblical intro to racial reconciliation

Hill doesn’t just speak from personal experience. He provides a firm scriptural foundation for a biblical response to “mourning with those who mourn” and “being united in Christ” for the purpose of fulfilling the two commands that are above all others, loving God with our whole heart, soul & might and loving others above ourselves.

Incredibly important book

For anyone, particularly if a white Christian US citizen, who honestly wants to understand the concept and power of ‘white privilege’, this book will explain, enlighten and go on to shake you up, if you have a shred of compassion. It will start you or help you along the way of awareness and changed perspective. Easy to understand and well read.

Great read.

I pray that Dr. Hill's book reaches its intended audience and beyond. As an African American reader, I found it refreshing to hear such a humbling testimony and transformative experience through the lens of someone that I not only consider an ally but a pioneer through this undertaking.

Now i get it...

It was an interesting read and it broadened my perspective and view of how ppl think based on their upbringing. Nice to see those who are really trying to change things making change within first.

Accurate and necessary

I truly enjoyed this perspective. When I bought the book I didn't realize how God centered that it is. WHAT A PLEASANT SURPRISE!! In 2018 it is clear how divided our country is, racially, even in the church. I highly recommend!

Helpful Book

Coming from an Evangelical Christian background and finding myself in a space to ask questions about racial identity and the church made this book a great next step along that journey. Helpful for understanding how the history of racism in America affects the segregation within churches today.

Underlying Christian message not clear

This book sounded great but no where in the description that I saw on Amazon did it say it was from a Christian perspective. I wish I could return it. Wasted $20.

Description of book is a bit misleading

The author's experience is fully connected to their personal and professional relations to their church and faith, and within the first few chapters in, noted that the pace of the narrator, and perspectives of the author were not worth continuing to dive into. Returned.
