At the Core
Examining the Parallels Between Christianity and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
by Sara Allen

What if the work of diversity, equity, & inclusion originated to restore a once-unified kingdom? God designed a unified kingdom for all of His creation, yet our world has become more divided than ever. At the Core takes an in-depth look at the parallels between Christianity and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and shows how they have more in common than not. Many individuals have felt the effects of the polarization of these ideologies, the hurt it has inflicted, and the division it has caused. At the Core creates intentional space for non-believers and Christians alike to understand one another in a new way. By combining simple definitions with biblical evidence, At the Core takes the noise of politics, media, and more out of the equation. Unlike other Christian books, At the Core doesn’t tell readers what to believe but equips them with the truth and provides the opportunity and space to decide what they believe for themselves. At the core, Christianity and DEI are not opposing topics, but intertwined and centered on meeting people where they are with love, kindness, and acceptance. At the Core clearly outlines for Christians how DEI is rooted in God himself in the diverse world God created, His equitable character, and His expectation of inclusivity as modeled by Jesus. In tandem, At the Core provides a framework for those in the world rooted in social injustice that there is hope beyond the brokenness, and that the God they think they know may actually be quite different than they expected.
