Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

How can you be a person who naturally forms cross-race relationships? In The Skin You Live In, author and pastor David Ireland combines Scripture with exhaustive research and years of experience to show how you can build interracial friendships, promote racial reconciliation, and support diversity in the church. You'll discover how to:

• Become more comfortable when reaching across racial and cultural lines
• Develop healthy interracial friendships
• Lead a multicultural team
• Help others passionately embrace diversity

If you want to reach beyond your walls into someone else’s life, The Skin You Live In is for you. It's a safe place to let down your guard and receive cross-cultural coaching from a follower of Jesus Christ so you can start the process of friendship building across racial lines in every area of your life.

Real solutions to the cross-cultural chasm that exists in our churches. I think God smiles when He sees us loving one another and the principles in this book are central to doing just that.

I found Dr. Ireland's book an easy read, but a challenge to put into practice. The good thing is that the author includes many practical steps for developing and maintaining cross-racial friendships.

Are you ethnically attractive? It's a question that we all need to ask ourselves and if you're less than pleased with the answer this is just the book for you. Dr. Ireland delves, challenges and ultimately inspires you to work through those things that have hindered you from being a person that attracts and maintains friendships across all cultural, racial and ethnic lines. Well written.
