Book Summary of The Third Option by Miles McPherson


America is a racially divided nation. Pastor and former NFL player Miles McPherson experienced this reality personally in his life. Culture plays a major role in racism, and few people are unaffected by it. Culture gives two options to deal with racism: us or them. “Culture pits one group of people against another by promoting a zero-sum-game mentality that says, ‘You must lose in order for me to win.’” (p. xv)

But there is a third option that God offers, which focuses on showing honor to all people, as all are created in the image of God. “When we honor the presence of His image in others, we acknowledge their priceless value as precious and beloved of God.” (p. xv)

There are many biblical examples of those who walked with God choosing this third option. It’s not always the easy path — it requires intentionality and faith — but the possibility of moving from an us-versus-them mentality in our society to see every person as precious in God’s sight and therefore worthy of our love and honor is worth the effort.
