About the Book

Racism is a painful, complex issue, and can be challenging to explain to children. As Christians, we're called to view all things through a gospel lens, and that's why it's so important that we have honest conversations about race with our kids. 

The Gospel in Color — For Parents is written specifically to equip parents to provide their children with a biblical perspective on race and racism, while celebrating the gospel’s power to bring about reconciliation.

Through rich illustrations and approachable text, this book helps parents present their kids with big ideas in an engaging 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!"
