Item Description...
Overview
For almost thirty years, Kimberly Cash Tate lived, moved and had her being in blackness. That was who she was. Her decisions, judgments, attitudes and opinions - the way she saw the world - were all filtered through her black lens. Even gender issues paled in relative importance. She was black first. A woman second. But then she acquired another defining adjective - Christian - and her world was turned completely upside down.

In "More Christian than African-American", Kimberly shares her life before and after Christ. In transparent prose, she leads the reader through the seasons of growing up in Prince George?s County, Maryland, "reveling" in college and finding the love of her life during law school?only to risk losing him when he accepted a position in Madison, Wisconsin. What black woman in her right mind would volunteer to move there? It was too "white." Ultimately, it was the Lord who moved Kimberly to Madison, where He saved her and utterly transformed her view of marriage, motherhood and the career she?d worked so long and hard to achieve. As she ventured beyond the familiarity of race, God changed her identity.

A woman second. But then she acquired another defining adjectiveChristianand her world was turned completely upside down. In More Christian than AfricanAmerican, Kimberly shares her life before and after Christ. In transparent prose, she leads the reader through the seasons of growing up in Prince Georges County, Maryland, reveling in college and finding the love of her life during law schoolonly to risk losing him when he accepted a position in Madison, Wisconsin. What black woman in her right mind would volunteer to move there? It was too white. Ultimately, it was the Lord who moved Kimberly to Madison, where He saved her and utterly transformed her view of marriage, motherhood and the career shed worked so long and hard to achieve. As she ventured beyond the familiarity of race, God changed her identity. All of us are children of God first and foremost, and Kim Tates message is such an important one for every Christian. Each of us has the deep human tendency to look for our identity in something that we think defines us whether that be our job, our gender, our special skills, or our culture. As Kim courageously tells her story of realizing just how much more she had defined herself as a lawyer, a gogetter and a black woman than simply as a Christian, I found the Holy Spirit gently opening my eyes to ways that I too have defined myself by something other than my identity in Christ. Kim, thank you. You are a trailblazer. And although you are a Christian first and foremost, youre also one captivating writer Shaunti Feldhahn, bestselling author of For Women Only What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men Kim Tate is right. The idea of having feelings about any other culture or race is certainly not Christ centered. The scriptures say that there is neither Greek nor Jewslave nor free, nor male or female. We are all one in Christ. May this book awaken you to understand that faith in Christ (and obedience to His Commands) is more valuable than your opinion of others. Dr. Thelma Wells, D.D., President A Woman of God Ministries, Dallas, Texas www.thelmawells.com God loves to take a life, draw it to Himself and turn our worlds upside down because without Him we get it all wrong. Its exciting to read how God did just that in Kimberlys life. He transformed her as a wife, a mother and a black woman. Its an exciting and inspiring journey and I hope each reader will be challenged by her story. Barbara Rainey Family Life Ministries, Author and Speaker Kimberly Cash is a prophetic voice pointing believers of every color and race to the truth that when we belong to Christ, our identity is in Him. Kim Cash teaches this lesson by weaving it into her life story. God, in his grace and providential timing brought her to the realization that as a black Christian she can and should rejoice in her blackness. But the guiding principle for every decision, every choice, including voting, is informed by this absorbing books title More Christian than African American. Penna Dexter Christian Radio Host

Better on the Radio  Oct 24, 2009
I heard Ms Tate interviewed on local radio and was so intrigued by her story, I included her book in my very next this site order.

Although Ms Tate writes clearly and without condescension, her affable, lilting tone is absent here. The essence of her deep transformation is lost on the written word.

Ms Tate is a fervent, devoutly dedicated Christian. She tells the truth about the state of her faith without excuse or compromise.

There are many lessons here, the title being the most important. No matter our physical and/or material lot on earth, Christian is our only true identity and, therefore, must be our priority. Ms Tate aptly illustrates what happens when we forsake Him.

Had I read Ms. Tate's book before hearing her speak, I know I would have enjoyed it more than I have. I can't say it's the most inspiring redemptive I've read or will read, nor would I recommend it. Neither my African-American friend or her daughter felt the story spoke to or about them.

If you're considering this book, save your money and use your library card.
 
Much needed for the "Human" race.  Feb 12, 2009
I've been learning more about my own Christian "world view" which has been challenging. It has always disturbed me that people (prior to accepting Christ as Savior -- myself included) identify themselves as "victims" of all kinds regardless of culture, geography or background.

I recently read a book "One Blood" by Ken Hamm who went extensively through Scientific evidence and DNA to show how there is only one (1) race -- the Human Race. How much melanin is in an individual's skin is irrelevant. Ken's minisitry is called Answers in Genesis. As I've continued to learn, the answers really are in the Book of Genesis in the Bible.

Then, as a further note in my amazing journey, I heard Kimberly Cash Tate speak about her book while driving home from work one day. It intrigued me because I've always wondered about Black "culture" and their way of thinking. This started when, as a child who grew up in a predominately white environment, I never heard anything bad said about blacks. In fact, the only thing I recall from childhood was my mother's account of an incident from her young adulthood. She had been raised in the mid-West and taught to respect everyone. She had rarely encountered anyone black. Her husband, my father, was in the Army and they were sent to the deep South -- their first experience of black culture. She related to me how appalled she was when a black woman, seeing my mother approach her on street, stepped off the sidewalk into the gutter so my mother could pass by. My mother related how hurt and confused she was by these attitudes. She was not raised to think of blacks any differently than herself.

She raised me with this same attitude. My revelation came later and was somewhat different. Having also been raised in the mid-West in my youth, I likewise had little encouter with B\blacks and was taught never to hate anyone. During my junior highschool years, we moved to Tennessee. The school I would have attended burned down over the summer, and I (along with other white children) were bused to a predominantely black school. The hatred I saw in the eyes of blacks when they looked at me was frightening and confusing. This was in the 1960's. I never understood it.

Mrs. Tate's book was illuminating for me in so many ways. It was a glimpse into black culture and black ways of thinking. I was surprised by the similarities I see in all cultures and kinds of people. Everyone, regardless of what they look like or where they are brought up want and need love and respect. Too often, we tell ourselves that we can only find that in our own "culture" or "kind." We keep the idea of "racism" going by thinking that way. Thanks be to God and Mrs. Tate for the inspiration to think and act Christian first and foremost. The ground is level at the foot of the Cross and in Christ there is neither Jew nor Greek (or Black, White, Brown, Yellow . . . well you get the idea)! There is only one "race" . . . the Human Race and we would all do well to live our lives that way. Thank you Mrs. Tate!
 
More Christian than African American  Jan 31, 2009
More Christian than African American was a breath of fresh air. I thank God that a Kimberly Cash-Tate, a Christian, African American women spoke the truth above putting God first before her race and everything else. I am a believer that my Christianity should supersede my culture and this book depicts this. If you have a problem with this well-written book then I challenge you to examine yourself. This book gives clarity on how we must trust God for direction in all of the areas of our lives. God wants full control and we must all die to ourselves as Kimberly did. This is a great read.

Identity in Christ  Jan 30, 2009
As one might imagine, "More Christian than African-American" was a controversial title a decade ago when it was first published. The controversy has not changed, nor has the book with the recent re-release. Author Kimberly Cash Tate continues to tell the tale of two parts of her personal journey, weaving them together.

As her sub-title suggests, her new identity in Christ turned her life upside down. From a person who saw herself first through her racial identity--black, and second through her gender identity--female, Tate has become a person who sees herself through her spiritual identity--Christian.

Reading the title closely ("More...than") one sees that Tate never negates the richness of her cultural heritage. Rather, she explains how Christ adds riches to who we already are by making us who we were always designed to be.

In an age when intercultural ministry and relationships are finally becoming more common, this is an important book. While not all will agree with the extent to which Tate takes the metaphor of change, all will be challenged to open the dialogue about our true identity and how we relate to one another.

Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," "Soul Physicians," and "Spiritual Friends."
