I liked this and think it would be a good book for a church small group discussion. The writing style is easy, very practical and of a more evangelical nature than I'm usually comfortable with. But there is a lot to think about. He defines Gracism as the positive extension of favor on other humans based on color, class or culture. It's not enough to treat people 'equally' - he believes we are called to treat people who are oppressed with special favor. I like the African proverb he relates at the end: "When I saw him from afar, I thought he was a monster. When he got closer, I thought he was an animal. When he got closer, I recognized that he was a human. When we were face to face, I realized that he was my brother." Food for thought and discussion.
