Dr. Derwin L. Gray to publish next book with Tyndale Momentum

Carol Stream, Ill. (January 22, 2021) — Tyndale House Publishers (@tyndalehouse) announced today that Dr. Derwin L. Gray, author of The Good Life and the founding and lead pastor of Transformation Church (, will publish his next book (yet untitled) with Tyndale Momentum.

In this groundbreaking book, Derwin will address what the Bible says about healing racial divides. He will take readers on a grand tour of the Bible, showing how God has always desired a multiethnic and diverse family that serves as a sign and foretaste of his Kingdom on earth by being communities of reconciliation, mission, and love. The gospel is bigger and better than we often realize. God not only forgives our sins, but he creates a family with different color skins to reflect the new heavens and new earth. It is a beautiful and compelling vision of a multicolored, multiethnic church that is characterized by humility, a good story, peace, and worship of the living God.

“We could not be more delighted to publish Dr. Gray,” said Jon Farrar, senior acquisitions director for Tyndale Momentum. “We desperately need a thorough exploration of what the Bible says about persistent racial divides, and Derwin delivers that in his next book. Dr. Gray is not only an influential and empathetic Bible teacher, he also founded a multiethnic church. He knows how to put these biblical truths into practice. We are thrilled to partner with Derwin on this seminal book.”

“I have watched the racial divide in our country widen,” said Derwin Gray. “I was not planning to write this book, but the critical nature of this historic moment would not let me escape its calling. I am excited to be writing this book so I can share with others the practical tools of how Jesus and his gospel-vision of love, grace, and reconciliation can heal our racial divide. I am thankful to Tyndale for giving me this opportunity, and I am eager to begin our partnership.”

Derwin Gray is represented by Alex Field at The Bindery.
