Her decisions, judgments, attitudes and opinions the way she saw the world were all filtered through her black lens. Even gender issues paled in relative importance. She was black first. A woman second. But then she acquired another defining adjective Christian and her world was turned completely upside down. In More Christian than African-American, Kimberly shares her life before and after Christ. In transparent prose, she leads the reader through the seasons of growing up in Prince George s County, Maryland, reveling in college and finding the love of her life during law school only to risk losing him when he accepted a position in Madison, Wisconsin. What black woman in her right mind would volunteer to move there? It was too white. Ultimately, it was the Lord who moved Kimberly to Madison, where He saved her and utterly transformed her view of marriage, motherhood and the career she d worked so long and hard to achieve. As she ventured beyond the familiarity of race, God changed her identity. "All of us are children of God first and foremost, and Kim Tate s message is such an important one for every Christian. Each of us has the deep human tendency to look for our identity in something that we think defines us whether that be our job, our gender, our special skills, or our culture. As Kim courageously tells her story of realizing just how much more she had defined herself as a lawyer, a go-getter and a black woman than simply as a Christian, I found the Holy Spirit gently opening my eyes to ways that I too have defined myself by something other than my identity in Christ. Kim, thank you. You are a trailblazer. And although you are a Christian first and foremost, you re also one captivating writer!"

More Christian Than African-American: ...and Other Ways Jesus Turned My Life Upside Down Reviews
"We need to be more Christian than Afro-American" - Pastor George Thomas This book has hit so many points about the things & areas God is growing me in, that I have been truly encouraged to be a better disciple. Not a better human or American or Woman, but a better representative of Christ himself! Walking as we are called by God, doesn't mean we neglect the plight nor oppression of those around us. It means that regardless of the issue, we align ourselves with God 1st! We should always be standing with God, regardless of how counterintuitive it seems to the world. I thoroughly enjoyed all the lessons, transparency & open hearted honesty of the journey for Kim. If God is calling you deeper or you just need to know how you can walk the straight & narrow from right where you are, then this book is for you! Kim Cash Tate doesn't use shame, guilt or condemnation to encourage you to let go of the labels/conformity of this world that hinder you. Instead, she is honest & loving in her personal story showing you how to follow God to the life He purposed for you!
Journey in self discovery.
I really enjoyed this book. It is a classic example of the ways in which God works to get our attention throughout the course of our lives and while we may not understand it in the process, He has a master plan and that He had for her life. This book made me look at how I identify myself and if there is anything about me or who I am that takes precedence over my identity as a Christian. I am many things in life and a child of God ranks high on the list.
A powerful look at what Christ can do when he changes a life.
Simply put, a wonderful read. Well written and paced. The first memoir I read that I couldn't put down. The author, Kimberly Cash Tate is truly blessed and gifted.
