How can an African-American consciousness and Reformed theology benefit each other? Where was God in the Atlantic Slave Trade? How does Christianity triumph among people historically oppressed in part by the church itself?
Positive, informed responces to such questions, thereby enriching our understanding and furthering racial reconciliation. Softcover, 153 pages. P&R Publishing.
Anthony J. Carter demonstrates the historical, biblical and theological consistency of Reformed theology, the richness of the African-American Christian experience, and the merit of bringing the two together.

This work is greatly needed in the church, and I am confident the Lord will use it for the re-africanization of the church.
A most edifying and important work. I suspect that generations to come will look back upon its publication as a milestone in the history of the Reformed theology. This book needed to be written, and more importantly it needs to be read.
When I met Anthony Carter several years ago I detected a rigorous mind, a righteous concern for racial justice, and a Reformed vision of Goda rare combination. Since then I have wanted to be a listener. Now this book makes that easier. May the Lord of nations use it to shape a powerful movement of God-centered Christians from all peoples who have tasted suffering.
As an African American I am delighted with the publication of this book. It will serve as an excellent introduction to Reformed theology for the emerging black Reformed community in the U.S. I anticipate that it will be a great resource for church planters and anyone else seeking to reach the black community.
