Item Description...
The provocative questions that have been designed for persons of color and persons of non-color in this new book on the subject of racism can no longer be swept under the rug; ignored or simply discarded as a result of denial, because they deserve answers. With this in mind, Robert Upton whose opinion and counsel are highly sought after on matters concerning racial diversity, race relations, racial tensions, racial reconciliation and racism in the church, introduces Racism@Work Among The LORDs People. Only when the heart has been pierced and what is on the inside has been exposed by the light can the real truth be found. Questions often provide further thoughts that can lead to answers being found and healing taking place.

Racism@Work Among The LORDs People will help those who have a problem with prejudice, bigotry and racism as well as those who need to find healing as a result of being wounded by these spiritual issues. The book also provides the reader with ten devotionals that have been written on the subject of the Bible and Racism. Practical suggestions are provided for pastors and their congregations that will assist them in obtaining racial diversity within their churches. A comprehensive analysis of demographic trends for the U.S. population has been provided, and more importantly, the direct implications that these trends will have on the Church are examined. The Appendixes Section includes a Resource list of consultants, organizations and governmental agencies where further information can be obtained. Ten Best Practices have been provided to help readers develop cross-cultural friendships and racially diverse organizations. Also, a Definitions of Terms page has been included that ! provides some practical definitions for persons of color, persons of non-color, prejudice, bigotry and racism. Prejudice, Bigoted and Racist Thoughts/ Statements are examined that can create barriers to achieving racial diversity within the Church. A Suggested Reading Section has been included that provides a comprehensive list of other books that have been published on the topic of racism. Finally, a Self-Assessment Tool has been provided that will help a reader set goals and identify practical action steps that can be taken to address racism.

The world is constantly changing around us and is becoming more racially diverse. The White population in the United States is aging and shrinking in number. It has now been projected that sometime after 2050 that Whites will account for less than half of the U.S. population. As a result in the near future, the people that you will most likely encounter in the business world, workplace, community, neighborhood, grocery store, health club and church will be persons of color.

How will you respond to the questions in this book?

What will you do to address the issues of prejudice, bigotry and racism?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Outstanding!  Jun 14, 2003
Robert Upton's book, "Racism at Work among the Lord's people" is a creative lens in which to view the world around you, and in a greater degree, your own heart. It is a work that takes you on a journey of discovery, ever thought provoking, never preachy. Upton doesn't tell you what to do or what to think on your journey. He lets you discover it yourself. With penetrating questions, you are compelled to think of other's shortcomings, but are forced to behold yourself. "Racism at Work" has a very interesting format, where the author creates a canvas, and as an artist would, we paint our own unique story.
Startling insight in the chapter "The Bible and racism". Obviously well thought out and researched, and extremely timely. with the ever increasing diversity of our communities we are faced with the opportunities, as well as challenges as these changes create. There are many good books on the subject, but very few place a mirror before you while you examine your own soul. It is more than a book, it is more like a tool to help repair the breach, and a key to help unlock the heart. I highly recommend it.
