Publisher's Summary

"Between the Christianity of this land, and the Christianity of Christ, I recognize the widest possible difference." (Frederick Douglass, 1845)

The prophets of old were not easy to listen to because they did not flatter. They did not cajole. They spoke hard words that often chafed and unsettled their listeners. Like the Old Testament prophets, and more recent prophetic voices like Frederick Douglass, Dr. Eric Mason calls the evangelical church to a much-needed reckoning. In a time when many feel confused, complacent, or even angry, he challenges the church to:

  • Be aware - to understand that the issue of justice is not a black issue, it's a kingdom issue. To learn how the history of racism in America and in the church has tainted our witness to a watching world.
  • Be redemptive - to grieve and lament what we have lost and to regain our prophetic voice, calling the church to remember our gospel imperative to promote justice and mercy.
  • Be active - to move beyond polite, safe conversations about reconciliation and begin to set things aright for our soon-coming King, who will be looking for a woke church.

Don't bother with this book! Read Wilberforce's "Real Christianity."

After reading this book a couple of times and going through it with a group, I found Eric Mason to be just as stubborn and racist as the people he is preaching against. If you want a great book, but with better content, read Wilberforce's "Real Christianity." Wilberforce lays it down hard and with gusto! He also has the track record to back up his words. Not to mention he is responsible for abolishing the slave trade in England and lubricated the process in the States. If anyone can talk about this subject, It's Wilberforce. Don't bother with this book.

PHENOMENAL BOOK!!!

This book needs a second listen and not because it's hard to digest, but because I want to retain everything Eric Mason expounds on in this book and let it work in me!
