Jesus tells us in the eighth chapter of John's Gospel "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32 CEB) Latasha Morrison's book Be the Bridge: Pursuing God's Heart for Racial Reconciliation is an invitation to step into a truth that is, at times, very painful. However, by facing these truths, we can become free. Ms. Morrison invites us to use biblical principles of lamentation, confession and forgiveness to overcome racial division and end systemic racism. Be the Bridge is a fantastic resource to help us confront our insecurities, reevaluate all that we think and believe about race and assist us, as Christ followers, to become bridge builders committed to pursuing justice and promoting racial healing in light of the Gospel.
