John Piper says that he grew up as a “full-blooded racist.” Last year he published a book that chronicles his rearing in the Jim Crow South, and he tells how the gospel is the only antidote to the sin of racism. It is a gripping account of the ugliness of racism and of the overwhelming triumph of grace.
The book is titled Bloodlines: Race, Cross, and the Christian, and today Desiring God Ministries has made the book available for you to download for free. This is a remarkable book, and you really ought to read it if you haven’t already.
