Review of "Under Our Skin" by Benjamin Watson

Like many, I was moved by Benjamin Watson's post on Facebook in the aftermath of what happened in Ferguson. Initially, I was touched, enlightened, thoughtful...and I clicked "follow" on Facebook, because I respected his words and found there to be wisdom in his writing. I was especially excited to have the opportunity to read and review this book. I was not disappointed.

Each chapter begins with a segment of his Facebook post, followed by background/support information of why he wrote what he did. He includes family stories, history, social commentary, movie dialogue, opinion, and so much more in this enlightening and thought provoking book. I do not have Mr. Watson's background or experiences and I am not only enriched, I am changed by the opportunity to read about his. I would recommend it to anyone who is willing to learn.

"I'm ENCOURAGED because ultimately the problem is not a SKIN problem, it is a SIN problem.....the gospel gives mankind hope."

I was given a complimentary copy of this book by Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
