Interracial Christian couples challenge their families and churches to rethink previously held concepts about race relations in America. While God has joined together an increasing number of interracial marriages, fear of race mixing has driven many Christian families and churches apart. This social and spiritual distance creates a void filled with mistrust and unbiblical stereotypes about interracial marriage and multiracial children.
This groundbreaking work weaves together the personal and professional perspectives of racially diverse Christian leaders as they confront this emotionally charged issue. This multi-disciplinary handbook serves a twofold purpose:
- to affirm healthy interracial dating, mating, and parenting for family members, and
- to create a reference textbook to equip professionals with biblical insights and practical tools for ministering to multiracial families.
Written from a biblical perspective by authors of various racial identities and multiracial backgrounds, Just Don’t Marry One includes challenging questions that can be used for personal reflection and for small-group discussion.
“This should be a required read for counselors, pastors, and persons considering interracial marriage, as well as their families. It will serve to explode myths, help both biological and adoptive parents, and heal racial divisions.” —A reader
"This book exudes honesty, vulnerability, transparency, and authenticity." —from the Foreword by Curtiss Paul DeYoung, author of Coming Together
"Just Don't Marry One is a courageous book. It combines professional insight with personal testimony to affirm interracial relationships and to create a reference work to equip professionals. It can serve as a primer for couples and for pastors, counselors, and spiritual friends." —Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., author of Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction
"This is a fantastic volume. I cannot overstate that fact. The essays deftly engage some of the most often used arguments—'scriptural,' cultural, familial, and otherwise—against people of different ethnic backgrounds engaging in romantic relationships." —as reviewed on Cogito/Credo
