The Beginning of Difference

Discovering Identity in God's Diverse World
  • By Theodore Hiebert

How we engage difference matters to our well-being and survival.

Difference can enrich us or tear us apart. Difference can make our lives stronger, fuller, and richer or it can destroy them. Therefore, how we engage difference matters. In The Beginning of Difference, author Theodore Hiebert re-examines the Bible’s stories explaining difference and its beginnings in the book of Genesis. The stories show us that recognizing difference is God’s intention for the world, providing us with constructive resources of living with difference today. Great for use as an adult small group study encompassing racism, xenophobia, and economic struggles, the book is also suitable as a textbook for religion classes in multiculturalism, post-colonial interpretation, and global Christianity.
