“Being White: Finding our Place in a Multi-ethnic World” by Paula Harris and Doug Schaupp
A great resource to begin understanding what it means to see white culture, to understand the implications of a majority culture, to understand an introductory definition of “white evangelical”.

Generous Justice by Tim Keller
It is commonly thought in secular society that the Bible is one of the greatest hindrances to doing justice. Isn’t it full of regressive views? Didn’t it condone slavery? Why look to the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? Tim Keller helps us understand the Bible as a fundamental source for promoting justice and compassion for those in need and explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice.
