    I watched Trillia speaking to Thabiti Anyabwile in an author interview and decided I wanted to buy this book. Ms. Newbell impressed me with her bright Christian countenance and her thoughtful, personal approach to a difficult issue.This book tells her personal story of inter-ethnic Christian friendship and church ministry, and it would be a good book to give to someone (perhaps especially a woman—simply because Trillia writes a lot about deep Christian friendships with other women) who needs t [...]

    It is a wonderful thing to be captured by something good. It will take your breath away and give you hope. United gives strength and purpose and when we are united in truth which is in Christ there is glory. It does'nt get much better than that. Mrs. Newbell experience in being captured by God's vision for diversity is engaging and reveals the heart at it's core As she plainly writes, diversity is not for diversity sake, but for love and I think for God's name sake. I think it is interesting tha [...]

    What a perfect tone Trillia Newbell finds in this book. I expect it's her natural voice, and that makes her a natural fit to be the voice we need in the SBC for diversity and biblical love for our neighbors. This book brought me clarity in the mission of diversity for the church, that we should yearn for it not because it is the new thing or because it's necessary for our denomination's future, but because we can see the beauty of "every tribe and nation", and thus the gospel, right here and rig [...]

    This book is a call to unity among the body of believers without color or culture playing a part in the big picture of relationships. I think it was well written and well thought out but I was a bit disappointed by the depth of the message. In reality I don't think I was her target audience. I grew up in a homogenous community with very little option for diversity, not because diversity was discouraged but because it just hadn't arrived in that area yet. Now as a cross-cultural worker in South A [...]

    Great book for my all white moms book discussion. Brought up a lot of discussion, and certainly better and far more important than the previous "mommy Christian" books we have read.

    Trillia Newbell is a talented journalist and blogger, having had articles featured at Desiring God, The Gospel Coalition, Relevant, Christianity Today, and many other sites. But what sets her book apart from these posts, which are all great, is her openness to share her personal story of how racial segregation in the church has affected her, as well as her desire to see things change in our generation.She points out that Sundays are the most segregated days of the week, as many of us walk into o [...]

    Newbell's book is experiential, not academic. Works that share one's own experience, especially thoughtful people like Newbell, are extremely helpful in the conversation about race. Her Christian faith has filled her with optimism that cuts against the grain of anger expressed by many other black writers. That is not to say that those writers are wrong for being angry. In the United States, black people have suffered innumerable indignities and injustices. Sustained anger is an appropriate respo [...]

    United Captured By God's Vision For Diversity By Trillia J. Newbell is a book about our churches becoming diverse and not just one race or culture. I was so excited to read this book and I was right to be excited about. I love how the author discusses while using scripture (correctly I might add) that our churches should be full of people of all races, financial status, and different walks of life. It is sad that in this day and age there are still many churches that are all one race or one type [...]

    Author Trillia Newbell is, plainly put, just wonderful. This small, easy-to-read book has so much heart and I can't help but conclude that the same must be true of Trillia. United: Captured by God's Vision for Diversity feels a little like an apologetic for diversity and I think it works very well in this regard. Although it has both theological and biblical depth, the primary content and narrative thread emerge through the author's personal story. And it works as a book without pretense and sel [...]

    This book is part testimony, part theology, and part challenge. Trillia writes with simple, straightforward language to call the Christian church in America to model the diversity called for in the Bible. She starts with her own experience as a black female in a predominantly white church. She tells about how God gave her a vision to see her church represent the beauty of diversity in the people of God, and why that is important. Then, she ends with a discussion on why pursuing biblical diversit [...]

    Excellent read. Beginning was a little slow but it was going over some basics that a lot of people have never read (I'm a theology nerd). This is a great concise overview of God's heart for the church and the reasons why we're called to embrace it and love it like He does. Sometimes this leads us to embrace people and therefore embrace the Church in uncomfortable waysways that aren't exactly like we're used to or aren't our particular preference. I really loved how she emphasized in several plac [...]

    Besides John Piper's book "Bloodlines", this is perhaps one of the best books out there on the topic of racial diversity in the Church. I'm personally thankful for this book because my experiences with the author are so similar. For many years I internalized my racial struggles in church for fear that people would think I'm not focused on the gospel. But Trillia does a phenomenal job of showing that God is for diversity because the gospel is for everyone! It's a critically important topic, and I [...]

    United talks about the elephant in the room. in the American Church. what do we do about our segregated churches? and for me, I connected with this book on a level of, what do i do as a minority about the segregation of churches? Trillia writes on the topic through anecdotes, testimony, and scripture, and SO. MUCH. GRACE. She's not angry or bitter at her church, as so easily could have been the case. instead, she finds her motivations for diversity in Christ's love, and challenges churches to pu [...]

    This black woman author dreams of churches where there is more ethnic diversity. She realizes that she has found diversity in her own life - first with close friends who are white and Chinese, and then with her white husband. Trillia celebrates a God who loves people of all nationalities. She gives practical suggestions for churches and individuals who want to welcome people of all variety of skin color and background.This is a short book that can be quickly read, and is well worth the time to r [...]

    For about 2 years I have read articles and blogs that Newbill has written. All of her writing is wise and encouraging. It was great to read more about her experience growing up, as a college student, and a growing Christian. She addresses race primarily through the lens of a black woman who love diversity in her church, among friendships, and her marriage. This book will urge you toward cross racial relationships. Let's do it.

    This is a wonderful and beautiful exhortation for Christians, and particularly local churches, to pursue ethnic diversity. It is part memoir and part Biblical apology for God's creation of and intentional redemptive purposes for ethnic diversity. It combines the right mix of objectivity and subjectivity (personal experience). Trillia Newbell is a transparent and compelling writer. At 150 pages, she keeps it concise.

    As the mother of a racially diverse family with children representing three very unique ethnic backgrounds this book has been food for my soul. Trillia Newbell takes a topic that can be divisive and simplifies it. It really is all about love. "Our pursuit of diversity isn't really about diversity, after all? Its about love - a radical, whole hearted, grace-motivated love for others. "

    I loved Trillia's book. Her loving spirit comes through her writing and her strong foundation in Biblical truth makes her message compelling. I felt like I could sit down and really talk with her about anything.

    I found this book to be too colloquial for me and lacking in concrete thoughts. Newbell basically tells her personal story of developing a desire for more diversity in her faith community, it's almost more autobiography than anything.

    One of the most troubling things is how divided America seems on a Sunday morning at church. Trillia Newbell openly discusses this issue head on. I am grateful for her insights and hope others--especially church leaders--put this on their reading lists.

    This is an amazing book!!! I love Trillia's voice in this book. It was especially good for be as an adoptive mom to read about some of the fears and struggles she faced within the church as black woman. Thank you for writing this book for the greater body of Christ!

    This was Book #1 in my Summer Reading and given all that has been happening in the news about race this book was spot on. I wrote a review at DrawingtheLineSomewhere. Newbell brings up great issues for the churches and Christians to consider. wp/p1vp6e-IC

    It's nice to read a book about diversity and racial reconciliation that's overwhelmingly positive. Chapter 8 in particular is immensely challenging and practical.

    Trillia is an amazing writer and crafts her story so marvelously that you can't seem to want to stop reading. A great book on racial healing and reconciliation.
