Publisher's Summary

This powerful book reimagines discipleship by begging us to acknowledge that racism exists in the Church—and offers the hopeful message that we can disciple it out.

It is not an accident that racism is alive and well in the American church. Racism has, in fact, been taught within the church for so long most of us don’t even recognize it anymore. Pastor Albert Tate guides all of us in acknowledging the racism that keeps us from loving each other the way God intends and encourages siblings in Christ to sit together in racial discomfort, examining the role we may play in someone’s else’s struggle. 

How We Love Matters is a series of nine moving letters that educate, enlighten, and reimagine discipleship in a way that flips the church on its head. In these letters that include Dear Whiteness, Dear America, and Dear Church, Tate calls out racism in the world, the church, within himself and us. These letters present an anti-racist mission and vision for believers to follow that helps us to speak up at the family table and call out this evil so it will not persist in future generations. 

Tate believes that the only way to make change is by telling the truth about where we are—relationally, internally, and spiritually. How We Love Matters is an exposition of relevant Biblical truth, a clarion call for all believers to examine how they see and understand each other, and it is a way forward toward justice, reconciliation, and healing. Because, yes, it is important that we love each other, but it is even more important how we love each other.

Excellent read

This was an excellent read. Albert Tate is a dynamic speaker and his book is put together very well. Albert articulates his points and captures your heart in his message. He sheds light on so many inequalities and injustices that it makes you want to do something about it. I makes me want to be, no I WILL be a better person to all my sisters and brothers; to all the others around me!

Powerful Book!

Be prepared for hard conversations that are vital to reconciliation! You WILL be uncomfortable when you read this! It will challenge your thinking and encourage you to move forward toward empathy with our siblings of Color.

Sibling love

Because he (me?) is white
You know what “ they” (all whites) are capable of
The sin of whiteness (not seeing me as a child of God just my skin color.
Not feeling the sibling love.
Like anything I try to eat the meat and spit the bones out. More bones than meat in this offering I’m afraid.
I hope my black grandson and Hispanic granddaughters don’t leave me this way when they reach maturity 🙏🏻

Wow

I learned more about being a pastor in this book than I did in four years of college and many years of ministry. It is absolutely eye opening.

Deeply Personal, Yet Widely Applicable

"Anything that makes you feel better about loving your neighbor less is probably godless."

Albert Tate has done it again. After following his preaching for just over a decade, I have once again felt challenged, encouraged and renewed by his words. I also felt something else: frustration... but an important, healthy frustration that leads one out of complacency and into action.

For anyone interested in diving into this exemplary piece of writing, I invite you to approach this with openness and readiness to listen and be humble. Come with your mind set on learning, not defending. Come ready to share in Albert Tate's sorrows and victories. Come ready and willing to be changed. Just come.

Our Personal Relationship with Christ

Listening to and reading Pastor Tate’s book helped me realize the importance of a true personal transformational relationship with Christ in order to love others and know how to love.

Pastor Tate shared inspirational stories and uncompromised truths that angered me, yet offered hope; encouraged me, yet challenged me; caused tears, yet laughter. He shared difficult conversations that are necessary discussions with our white siblings for racial reconciliation; and the importance of learning and understanding the cultures of our other siblings’ ethnic groups.
Racism lives in all of our hearts and until we choose and allow a new heart to be created in us through Jesus Christ, we can neither love, nor know how to love.
The Gospel of Christ brings true redemption and reconciliation that causes me to: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself.” And as I receive grace from God, I give grace to others.
Thanks Pastor Tate for the lesson on “How We Love Matters.”
