    Description

    Can it ever get better? This is the question Benjamin Watson is asking. In a country aflame with the fallout from the racial divide - in which Ferguson, Charleston, and the Confederate flag dominate the national news, daily seeming to rip the wounds open ever wider - is there hope for honest and healing conversation? For finally coming to understand each other on issues that are ultimately about so much more than Black and White? 

    An NFL tight end for the New Orleans Saints and a widely read and followed commentator on social media, Watson has taken the Internet by storm with his remarkable insights about some of the most sensitive and charged topics of our day. Now, in Under Our Skin, Watson draws from his own life, his family legacy, and his role as a father to sensitively and honestly examine both sides of the race debate and appeal to the power and possibility of faith as a step toward healing.

    What's Under Our Skin?

    Watson shines a light on the true problem with racism. "Its not a skin problem, its a sin problem." This is powerful, thought provoking book looking at the issues of race in America. Thanks Ben, this book has not only helped me talk about race with kids and adults, more importantly it has allow me to get with God and deal with the racists views in my own heart.
    Rev. Felton L. Woodson, MEd, MDiv

    A white Christian woman listening

    Listening to each other of all races with open ears. Constantly learning & coming at the situation in American with open arms because we are a broken society. This book & Benjamin’s writings exceeded my expectations & pushed my thinking to constantly think outside the box. The amount of compassion & fervent Mr Watson writes with is exactly what white America needs to hear. An incredible source that I will read to our kids when they are a little older too.

    A balanced perspective

    I found this book to be very helpful in offering a balanced perspective. It invites you to look inward, outward and upward to solve racial issues. Very thoughtfully written.

    Outstanding Book

    Mr. Watson articulates what many are struggling with to communicate and/or understand. He provides both perspective and what is at the heart of the problem.

    A great book on race relations

    I enjoyed the author's use of personal illustrations and well known events to tie his different points together. As a white person reading this book, I appreciate his explanations of the "black experience" as it relates to his family through multiple generations.

    Benjamin Watson for President

    Great book and a wonderful listen. Benjamin Watson does a great job of sharing his struggles and triumphs. He is compassionate in his suggestions and offers no judgement on others. This book offers the missing element in the discussion of how to heal a nation in its struggle with race and that is faith. Even a person with no faith walk can benefit from hearing how faith plays a role in empathically caring about others.

    Powerful, convincing, and moving

    As a white, evangelical conservative, I found Ben’s writing to be immensely helpful and revealing. He is honest, balanced, and biblical. It’s not easy to hear that racism is still prevalent in modern times, but Ben captures the truth in a way that avoids the pitfalls of some modern humanistic theories. A must read for 2020.

    Excellent balanced book

    This was a wonderful book on race relations! Benjamin is very balanced as he talks about issues facing our world today. I was very thankful that he brings it all back to the Gospel message. He is a great writer! My attention was held from the first page. It challenged my beliefs and biases and I know I’ll look at things from a different lens going forward. This is one of those books that you can’t remain unchanged after reading. Also, the narrator was great! I would highly recommend it !
