Description
"So what happened to Christianity in America? This is the question my brother Jonathan faces head-on in this book. He follows this question to the heart of America's original sin, and he invites all of us to join him there and face another question: is our God greater than America's racism? This is a question we must answer, no matter the color of our skin. Slaveholder religion has infected every corner of the church in America-including the black church. We must never forget that there were enslaved people who accepted the theology fed to them on plantations." (From the foreword by Dr. William J. Barber II) "This book contains the message I have been longing to hear for several years now. It is the book so many of us need to read." (D. L. Mayfield, author of Assimilate or Go Home) "Jonathan is a moral prophet and spiritual physician for our time. In this timely book, with the precision of a heart surgeon, he exposes the sickness that has long-plagued American Christianity and infected our society and politics, revealing that none of us is untouched by the disease. With the credibility of his life lived in solidarity with systemically oppressed people, he resounds a clarion call to reform the way in which we live the gospel. This is a must-read for all Christians in America. You will be humbled, enlightened, and motivated to heal the ailing heart of our country and recover its soul." (Phileena Heuertz, founding partner, Gravity, a Center for Contemplative Activism).
