In “Three Mississippi: A Mississippian Burning with a Passion for Reconciliation” (published by CrossBooks), author Hal Kitchings’ new book, readers learn that anyone can have a relationship with the Lord in spite of their past.

Readers join Kitchings as he takes a deeply honest look at racial prejudice in the Deep South of the 1960s. As a third generation pastor, the author treats readers to a unique perspective on racial segregation, prejudice, equality and integration.

To help make the book an easier read, Kitchings compares the reconciliation of the South with its racial history to a sinner reconciling with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. He hopes that by doing this, he will show readers how true reconciliation is achievable, regardless of skin color or socio-economic background.

Written as a half memoir and half commentary, “Three Mississippi” is divided into three sections that stretch from the height of integration in the 1960s to the author’s current efforts to bridge the gap between people from different cultures. He confronts Mississippi and his own sin in an effort to add more depth to the story. Using a witty, conversational style, “Three Mississippi” tackles Mississippi’s heated past head on.

An excerpt from the book:

“When God begins to work in your life, He doesn’t immediately toss a saddle on your back or seek to break you through the circumstances of life. Instead, He works with a plan and goal in mind. Bit-by-bit and inch-by-inch, He brings you to a place where He can train you to live a life that glorifies Him and is a blessing to others.”
