    1. Chris Wilson

      The only thing I lament about this book is how long it took me to get if off the shelf and get it read. This book and the topics covered by African-American Christian leaders is a true gift to the church. In these uncertain times of how to move forward in engaging, reconciling, and learning across racial lines this book is the perfect primer.Ten chapters, essays submitted by various leaders, make up the content of the book. Primarily this is an entrance of the black church into the conversation [...]

      Preface: this book is largely a constructive response to Bill Cosby and Alvin Poussaint's Come on People: On the Path from Victims to Victors (2007). Chapter 1: More than Victims: the benefits of a theological vision (Vincent Bacote)First part briefly summarizes the chapters of Cosby and Poussaint's Come On People. "Here is what many African-Americans live with every days: black males as an endangered species, unstable communities, children subject to poor parenting, deficient education, seducti [...]

Bill Cosby and Alvin Poussaint in their 2007 work, Come on People on the Path from Victims to Victors, that directly addressed problems within the African American community, particularly social ills among young black men. The original Cosby & Poussaint conversation, while very [...]

      Really helpful and a great introduction for a white evangelical seeking to understand more about the black church and black community at large. Certain chapters were especially good (namely the chapter on Gangsta Rap and other insights into the dysfunctions of the black family). Many times I found my heart grieved and felt helpless but I'm "keeping my head up" about the future. Another thing that is worth noting: every solution in this book toward the restoration of the black community in Americ [...]

      Good but unremarkable. Probably a little disappointing based upon my hopes / expectations going in. But still a worthwhile read to help me better understand the Black church in the U. S.
