Piper examines the Word and the world with regard to racial sin, pointing us to Christ#x19;s death as the source of hope for our common bloodline. Racism, hatred, and claims to ethnic superiority have been tragic elements of the human condition since the Fall. In every manifestation, the root of racial sin is an unbelieving heart resistant to the grace and mercy of God. The gospel of Jesus Christ, therefore, is the only hope for any meaningful racial solutions.#xA0; John Piper brings the light of the gospel to bear on racial issues in this groundbreaking book. Bloodlinesbegins with Piper#x19;s confession of his own sins and experience with racial tensions, along with how God has been transforming him and his church. After an overview of the reality and extent of racism, he draws the reader to Scripture with chapters explicating key passages that bring clarity to the accomplishment and application of the gospel with regard to race. The book concludes with sections on what Christ#x19;s atoning death means for racial issues, interracial marriage, and prejudice.#xA0; With great sensitivity and compassion, along with a careful reading of God#x19;s Word, Piper helps readers navigate the painful landscape of racial sin, showing that in the gospel we all have a common bloodline and that through the blood of Christ, race and ethnicity become secondary for a common people of God.#xA0;
