Unfortunately I haven't read it yet, nor is it available on Vyrso, but I'll throw it in anyway.

https://www.amazon.com/CROSSING-LINE-CULTURE-RACE-KINGDOM/dp/1946800228 

The author is from the same group of churches which I attended while I was a mission worker in Cambodia. As far as I'm aware, they have eliminated racial division in the Church  entirely (even in places like South Africa). So I guess this book must contain some good stuff.

The Bible.

He has made from one blood every nation of men to live on the entire face of the earth, having appointed fixed times and the boundaries of their habitation, Acts 17:26

If you're on the more text critical side of the house: https://www.amazon.com/Together-Minority-Biblical-Criticism-Literature/dp/1589832450 The editor is quite interesting, as well as the perspectives.

I like the phrase 'hermeneutical malleability' (probably badly mispelled).  What an umbrella phrase.

Separate and apart from the merits of this work - which may be substantial - I find that phrase terrifying.

I don't have this one, but it looks relevant: Can a Cushite Change His Skin? An Examination of Race, Ethnicity, and Othering in the Hebrew Bible

NSBT is consistently good, and I do have this one:

These are some of the very best. I would also suggest books on slavery and its backlash. I'll throw in two I consider the best at the end.

Thanks for the recommendations from everyone so far.  I would love to see as many of these resources as possible make it into Logos.  What a timely issue which we all should understand more.
