Experiencing the Truth communicates the need of a vibrant, experiential, Reformed Christianity among African-Americans and all believers.

How does a believer choose a church to attend? Sadly too many Christians search for churches that serve them and meet their perceived needs. Instead they should prefer places where God is exalted and biblical truth and Christian doctrine are proclaimed. Such churches are essential if Christians are to understand what God is doing and what he calls His people to be.

Experiencing the Truth presents these truths not simply to African-American churches, but also to the whole church today. Anthony Carter, Michael Leach, and Ken Jones clearly present the need for a vibrant, experiential, Reformed Christianity among African-Americans. These authors lay out the biblical basis for choosing and attending a church, and they demonstrate how the historic Reformed expression has been the most biblically accurate and experientially consistent expression of Christianity.

Excerpt


Black churches and their leaders are at the front line of a war for the lives of people bound by fear, anger and idolatry. Socialists, politicians, and economists all have failed to solve the complex problems of African-American families. But victory is available and believers hold the key. Dr Walker unfolds a plan for spiritual warfare using the weapons of God. Drawing from biblical characters such as Nimrod, Jezebel,and Tamar, Dr Walker describes the various types of strongholds that imprison black men, women, and children today. He matches the weapons of ancient warfare with our spiritual weapons, providing a vital practical ministry resource for pastors, counselors, and laypeople.

Excerpt


In this clarion call to African American churches, Demetrius Williams points to the next stage in their historic march to freedom: overcoming sexism in the church. Williams demonstrates how the Bible--and especially the liberating message and ministry of Jesus, which broke through the taboos and social barriers of his day--have been powerfully exerted by black churches to confront society's racism and class injustice. Now, he argues, that ancient vision and proud legacy must be employed again to address the inequities of women in the Christian churches themselves. A model for how biblical studies can illumine and inform the contemporary scene, William's important work will help all Christian churches to renew themselves in light of the biblical message and to reaffirm the equality of all people before God.

Excerpt


Some Christians have had it with homosexuality in the church, particularly among leadership in the African-American church. In his new book Straight Up, author Michael Stevens takes a no-nonsense, hard-hitting approach to exposing the double lifestyle and its ramifications. He then offers redeeming hope to those who want out.

Tired of the homosexual agenda trying to "soothe our conscience and level of tolerance," Stevens fires back with a hard-hitting, in-depth look at the emotional, spiritual, and psychological damage this "nurtured" disease is having on the very core of the black family---the male seed. He adamantly pushes forward on this controversial subject because "we must deal with a disease that is invisible with no symptoms of potential threat or current characteristics of existence."

Stevens also points out that "for every deception and myth, there is hope and healing." He offers a four-step process that begins with acceptance, followed by repentance, avoidance, and confidence. The detailed plan, he is sure, will help men walk out of the double lifestyle into a new life full of straight living.

Michael A. Stevens Sr. is the senior pastor of University City Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, which he founded in 1994. He is also a superintendent in the Church of God in Christ and the founder of Covenant Churches and Ministries International. He received his bachelor of science degree in political studies from North Carolina A & T State University in 1992. He is currently pursuing his master of divinity degree from Oral Roberts University, and was recently named one of "30 Emerging Voices Under the Age of 40" by Charisma Magazine. Pastor Stevens is married with three children.
