520    "Cara Meredith grew up in a colorless world. From 
       childhood, she didn't think issues of race had anything to
       do with her. A colorblind rhetoric had been stamped across
       her education, world view, and Christian theology. Then as
       an adult, Cara's life took on new, colorful hues. She 
       realized that her generation, seeking to move beyond 
       ancestral racism, had swung so far that they tried to act 
       as if they didn't see race at all. But that picture 
       neglected the unique cultural identity God gives each 
       person. When Cara met and fell in love with the son of 
       black icon, James Meredith, she began to listen to the 
       stories and experiences of others in a new way, taking 
       note of the cultures, sounds and shades of life already 
       present around her. After she married and their little 
       family grew to include two mixed-race sons, Cara knew she 
       would never see the world through a colorless lens again. 
       A writer and speaker in an interracial marriage and mixed-
       race family, Cara finds herself more and more in the 
       middle of discussions about racial justice. In The Color 
       of Life, she asks how do we navigate ongoing and 
       desperately-needed conversations about race? How do we 
       teach our children a theology of reconciliation and love? 
       And what does it mean to live a life that makes space for 
       seeing the imago Dei in everyone? Cara's illuminating 
       memoir paints a beautiful path from white privilege toward
       racial healing, from ignorance toward seeing the image of 
       God in everyone she meets." -- Amazon
