Bridging the Political & Racial Divide:
How Godly Politics Can Transform a Nation
Some would say, “Now is not the time to talk about race in politics. America is divided and needs to be united.” Alice Patterson’s book demonstrates that now is the time to discuss what has divided us and how to bring transformation to our nation. Race is at the forefront of our nation. Many people think they have heard too much. But do they have answers?
This book is an invitation to step into the Grand Canyon of all breaches in America—the division between Black evangelicals who are mostly Democrats and White Evangelicals who are mostly Republicans. It will lead you through Alice’s personal discovery about racism—the personal and corporate kinds, as well as the overt and the unconscious.
In this book you will find reconciliation and racial healing in an unlikely place—the political arena. Is God interested in politics? Does He want you to get involved? Can ordinary citizens have real power instead of just influence? Can we empower evil powers without even realizing it? Is tolerance a virtue or a sin? All the answers and more are found in Bridging the Racial and Political Divide.
This book will help you to understand how to bring change on the:
- The personal level
- The governmental level
- The strategic spiritual level
What Others Are Saying
“Alice poses a sobering question: Why are Black and White evangelicals, who agree theologically, so divided by race, especially in politics? This book is devoted to providing the answer, not only to the causes of the divide but, most importantly, to show how to bridge it so that God’s presence and power can be brought into the political arena to make this world a better place.”
Author, Anointed for Business and Transformation
“In this book, my good friend, Alice Patterson, the granddaughter of a deceased Ku Klux Klan member, presents a thorough, incisive, serious, and compelling story about how God dealt with her concerning racism. Alice tells the heartfelt story of the principles she learned, the evil structures she discovered, and reveals the God-given strategies to dismantle the structures. This book touches on race relations, politics, hidden Black history, and most of all, repentance and reconciliation. A wealth of information can be learned from this rich and interesting study.”

“No where in this country among the 568 tribes of Indians have we ever had a document as clear as Bridging the Racial and Political Divide. I’ve wondered for many years if any book would hit the streets with so vital information of bringing back true reconciliation of the truth that could heal the wounds of my people. I’ve found such a book in the pages of this vital document.”

“When God looked and sought for someone to stand in America’s political gap, we are so fortunate that He found Alice Patterson! There isn’t a person in America that understands race, politics and God’s heart for reconciliation like Alice does. As you read this book, the scriptures will come alive, and God’s love and desire for unity will invade your heart. Unto that end, this book is part of God’s history of faithfulness through an incredible intercessor. For many of you, this book will be a watershed moment that will mark you for life.”
