Publishers Description
In Grace Matters, we follow the remarkable journey of Chris Rice, a naive white college student from Vermont, who was transformed into an insightful man of faith who helped form a thriving interracial community in Jackson, Mississippi. Chris Rice's compelling story uncovers the wounds that divide the races and reveals what it takes to bring blacks and whites together, honestly, compassionately, and transcendently.
As a young man in 1981, Chris Rice thought he would take a few months off from his college to join the Voice of Calvary ministry. There he met Spencer Perkins-- the eldest son of John Perkins, legendary African American evangelist and civil rights movement activist-and was forever changed. Together, Chris and Spencer and an extraordinary group of ordinary people entered into a bold experiment, creating an interracial faith community called Antioch, after the Mediterranean city where the followers of Jesus first became known as "Christians." Pooling their resources, this dedicated group of black and white Christians joined forces to realize the vision of the Sermon on the Mount. In so doing they not only enriched their own lives but also those of their inner-city neighbors.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A moving, helpful book  Mar 20, 2010
This is one of the best books I've read because it is so real. Chris Rice shares unvarnished stories about his friendships with others in the community of white and black in Jackson who sought to minister together to others and live out what it means to be the body of Christ. The stories of the difficulties they encountered are helpful because they teach us about life and its hard things, our own hearts and their need for change, and spiritual wisdom and practices such as communicating, reflection, celebration, grieving. The book encouraged me to be more honest with friends and to seek a more mature life. I highly recommend it.
 
Blown away by this book.  Sep 18, 2008
This books keeps your attention just to see what happens with the bold project. You get to know the personalities fo the book too and that helps to keep you there - rooting for them.
 
Beautiful Story  Aug 1, 2008
This is simply a beautiful and well-written story of friendship. The vulnerability, honesty and humility in the stories make it a remarkable and inspirational work. May the story of Chris and Spencer inspire us tear down the walls that divide us and march forward as more whole people, learning to love with a steady dose of grace.
