Do you feel exhausted by tribalism? You aren’t alone.

As culture warriors divide the world into us and them—fracturing families, friendships, and churches—most of us long for an end to the constant fighting. But does a practical path exist?

Jesus lived in a culture split by tribalism, but he resisted its allure by choosing something bigger: truth. He’s now inviting you to apply his ancient path to the modern culture war. In Truth Over Tribe, you will learn:
  • How tribalism makes your life miserable
  • How to lovingly resist when a tribe demands your allegiance
  • How to heal relationships fractured by tribalism
  • How to unite diverse communities
How would your community change if you became a catalyst for Christlike unity? Rejecting tribalism is the first step.

“This book has given me a much better understanding of how and why our country has become so dangerously polarized and fractured. But even better, it presents simple, effective examples of what we as individuals can do to help stem the tide! What a great and timely reminder of the blessing that comes when we take a step back and focus on keeping first things first!”
— Michael Porter Jr., NBA player

“I don’t know if one good and timely book can compete against the algorithms that generate billions in profits by wrecking our society. But I’m praying that Patrick Miller and Keith Simon succeed, for the sake of our churches, for the sake of our children, for the sake of our own spiritual health. Revival looks like Christians waking up to the ways political parties and their allied media seek to co-opt and corrupt our faith.”
— Collin Hansen, The Gospel Coalition, host of Gospelbound podcast

Truth Over Tribe takes an honest look at what we are doing and why we are doing it. In a world of tribal temptations, we must be people who are true to God’s Word. We were made to belong first to God. Patrick and Keith are working to lead the way.”
— Kyle Idleman, bestselling author of Not a Fan and One at a Time

“As a gay atheist kid who fell in love with Jesus during a raging culture war between ‘the gays’ and ‘the Christians,’ I know what it’s like to live in the no man’s land between two warring tribes. Now decades later, when news and social media sell moral outrage and self-righteousness as a business model, Patrick Miller and Keith Simon offer this gift to the church. It’s a beautiful call to realign our tribal loyalties to Jesus, a king whose business model is founded upon his own radical grace to sinners like us.”
— Greg Johnson, PhD, lead pastor, author of Still Time to Care
