The promise of America has always been creative potential: enterprise, industry, optimism, idealism, and hope. This promise, known since the beginning of the New World and named since the Great Depression as the American Dream, is what makes immigrants cry at the base of the Statue of Liberty. But there is a dark side to the American Dream, tooone that we dont talk about much in polite company. A side characterized by the exploitation and domination of subjected people.
The national climate has caused many to question the validity of the American Dream, and whether it even offers a viable vision for the nation. There are few greater questions to ask. Our collective future depends on a common vision. If the American Dream is dead, then what happens next?
This book evaluates the American Dream, establishes its roots, gives reasons for its decline, and offers solutions to reclaim the promise of the American Dream that is more aligned with Jesus vision of the kingdom of God and Martin Luther King Jr s vision of the Beloved Community. Our challenge is to develop a redesigned American Dream, a sustainable future for all, free from exploitation and domination of subjected people.
Additionally, he hosts 15 Minutes of Faith with Dr. Frank A. Thomas, a weekly inspirational, thought provoking talk radio ministry that speaks to the well-being of body, mind and soul. His most recent book, Preaching With Sacred Fire: An Anthology of African American Sermons, 1750 to the Present, co-edited by Martha Simmons, was released in 2010. He also published, They Like to Never Quit Praisin God: The Role of Celebration In Preaching, considered by many to be a preaching method classic.
Thomas holds a Ph.D. in Communications (Rhetoric) from the University of Memphis, D.Min. degrees from Chicago Theological Seminary and United Theological Seminary, a Master of Divinity degree from Chicago Theological Seminary and a Master of Arts degree in African-Caribbean Studies from Northeastern Illinois University. He serves as an adjunct professor in the Doctor of Ministry in Preaching and Master of Divinity programs at McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago, IL and facilitates preaching workshops and leadership development in various settings.
