Product description

From the Back Cover

Looking for the right person to help move your church, business, or organization toward multiethnicity?

The neighborhood surrounding the Poplar Bible Church and Christian Academy is changing. Gary, the senior pastor, has convinced the church and schools leadership team of the need to be more intentional about becoming multiethnic. He has also convinced the team that becoming multiethnic means hiring the right person to lead these efforts. When Gary reaches out to an old friend, Peter, to lead them through the process of identifying the kind of leader Poplar will need to welcome their new neighbors, the longstanding traditions, values, and perspectives of the team are challenged.

In this timely fable, Bryan Loritts, lead pastor of Fellowship Memphis and president of The Kainos Movement, explores three cultural expressions that exist within every ethnic group. He shows why understanding these cultural expressions is important when looking for the right leader to move your organization toward multiethnicity.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's 5:13 am 11 Sept. 2014
By Mikey Terrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My heart has been for multi-cultural worship now for the past 7 years. I am studying it in school. I figured this book wouldn't teach me anything I didn't already know being a C-2. I was wrong. Bryan Loritts does a great job of defining all his terms and giving great wisdom on how we can find, utilize, and become leaders in culturally diverse settings no matter the background. He does this in a easy to read page turner. I loved the characters and was surprised at the end. It's 5:13 am, I have class at 9, but I couldn't put it down.
5.0 out of 5 stars Narratival Smuggling 30 Dec. 2015
By Swale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Good story (for having been written by a pastor who, as far as I can tell, has only written non-fiction), but it brilliantly kneads in important theological and sociological realities. As the fictional search committee takes a journey of cross-cultural worldview shifting, the reader is brought along as well. My only critique is that the subtitle may be too narrow - all believers who would like to relate more meaningfully across cultures would benefit from this smooth, enjoyable read (I, a very slow reader, read it in two days). The author's real life, proven leadership in multiethnic church planting adds gravitas to the book. He is not, like many young leaders, pontificating while he experiments - he is doing and has done these things well (in an address he gave at a conference, I heard him recount a personal story which seems to be exactly the conversation the sweet old lady had with Pastor Peter in the first section).

As a professor once told me (and thus freed my conscience), not every book is worth reading cover to cover...but this one IS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be required reading for every one who calls themselves a christian. 20 Feb. 2015
By GodReigns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book. It is especially enlightening for someone, like myself, who grew up in an area of the country not directly confronted with the gross racial prejudices that were inflicted on blacks in the deep south. It helped me gain a basis for better understanding the mind set of some Afro-American people whom I have known who seem to treat me with suspicion and seemed to only allow for a superficial friendship to develop. I think this book has opened my eyes to what I as a member of the majority race need to process and consider when meeting a person of color for the first time. Its like they say, you only have one chance to make a good first impression. The bible says to have friends you have to show yourself friendly. A great, engaging read. Good job Bryan Loritts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, beautifully written. 5 Oct. 2015
By Korean Food Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I started reading this book just before bedtime. My plan was to read it for a few minutes. But, I couldn't stop readying and ended up finishing the book. It's hard to find a book that is so easy to read but makes you think deeply about important issues. It's a book every christian should read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Read it Straight Through Without Putting It Down!! 23 Dec. 2014
By Rob Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book contains great inroads to those seeking not just to understand the biblical basis and mandate for the multi-ethnic church, but contains credible "How To" criteria that undergirds selecting the right person/fit (minority or not) for your organization/church.

Loritts brings the heat and is right on point as he tackles and ties together the aspects of ethnicity and culture within society at-large AND the church.

Thank you so much for this treatise. It provides a solid platform and fuel for my continued efforts to educate my local church concerning the importance of "properly" pursuing an inclusive, multi-ethnic church!

To God be the Glory!!
