Can I write a “My Favorite Things” post about a book I haven’t read yet? SURE I CAN! I am sooo stinkin’ excited about this soon-to-be-released book!!!
Our family has been bi-racial for a short time now. In this short time, I’ve learned BEAUTIFUL things about the diversity of heaven and that Amelia and I can share the familial blood of Christ. When I heard that John Piper (sweet pastor, brilliant theologian, self-proclaimed ex-racist, and transracially adoptive father) has written a book called Bloodlines: Race, Cross and the Christian, I about exploded with excitement. I cannot wait to learn more about how race and bloodlines relate to the cross and Christianity! I know it will be beautiful truth!!!
“God arranged for Ruth a holy tryst with Boaz so that the DNA of David would have Moabite genes to silence ethnic arrogance.” -John Piper
I really might pop. It comes out late September. Oh boy oh boy oh boy.
