For almost thirty years, Kimberly Cash Tate lived, moved and had her being in blackness. That was who she was. 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!" Shaunti Feldhahn, best-selling author of For Women Only: What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men
