About the Book

Racism is a painful, complex issue, and can be challenging to explain to children. That’s why The Gospel in Color — For Kids is written to facilitate honest conversations about race and racial reconciliation between kids and their parents.

With vibrant illustrations and engaging text, this book explains how a false idea of race brings about suffering and division, and why the good news of Jesus Christ brings about the reconciliation the world needs.

By providing a biblical lens for viewing race, racism, and reconciliation, The Gospel in Color helps kids understand big ideas in a highly accessible way.


“These books are readable, so as to engage the imagination of our children. These books are relevant, so as to push back against the very present ideas that constrict the image of God on darker skin. And the books are rich, so as to mobilize parents to carefully give 'The Talk' — the greater one: the one about God’s great love for humanity!"
