Publisher's Description

How could a church culture that lifted high the name of Jesus make covenant with the Confederacy? How did the Southern Baptist Convention lead the way? How do divided hearts and unholy covenants still hinder awakening in the conservative US church culture? What dramatic changes will a spirit of grace and supplication bring?

We Confess The Civil War, the South, and the Church uncovers the answers, historically and biblically.

God is revealing what we haven't wanted to see, so we can become who we truly are. He promises to cleanse us from bloodguilt not yet cleansed, as we say what we haven't dared say. As we confess, healing, life, oneness, witness and true worship flow. As we confess, our Lord is honored and his kingdom furthered.

So why don't we, who most tend to gravitate to the word "celebrate" when talking of the Civil War, instead throw all caution to the wind--and confess?

Honest, compelling, courageous, redemptive, this remarkable look at the conservative church culture rooted in the Deep South explores such topics as

king cotton and mighty oaks;the fast God has chosen;spiritual bulimia;spiritual schizophrenia;blood covenant;cleansing from bloodguilt;an undivided heart.

    "We Confess! The Civil War - The South - and the Church" carefully records a time line of the discovery, development, and history of the territory settled by Spanish explorer Hernando De Soto right up to the post-Civil War days. Deborah Brunt describes the mistreatment of the native American Indians, as well as the implication and reality of the injustice of the "Indian Territory."

    Brunt goes on to address and openly discusses: The corporate sins of the nation and of the church; Jim Crow laws; the Civil Rights Movement; and unresolved issues prevalent today.

    She evaluates bigotry and segregation, the Klan and the obsession with greed, power, and pride. She calls attention to the immorality, violence, and intimidation, mobbing, rape, and violence ignored by society and the white church. The book is a well-documented detailed account of the influence of slavery on the founding and history of the Southern Baptist Convention.

    Deborah Brunt's historical research is thorough and meticulously documented. She reveals phenomenal spiritual insight into the issues facing the conservative church culture with specific attention to the southern church. Brunt is passionate about confronting the hard and difficult issues of how fear and pride, strife, and rejection have resulted in rebellion and bloodshed.

    The themes of the Old and New Testament "Blood Covenants," redemption, sanctification, and atonement accompany the message of the Gospel of Christ, His death, burial, and resurrection throughout the entire book. The book is written as a call to establish unity within the church.

    Brunt's writing is disturbing, stirs the emotions, and is controversial. She writes with passion, is convincing and convicting. It brings a prophetic picture of the danger of building on a faulty foundation. I was left with the challenge to assume responsibility as an individual to make a conscientious effort to impact others in my own circle of influence to also take the message of confession, repentance, and renewal to their world. In turn we can all impact the molders of public opinion that represent us in government, and in the leadership of the church.

    "We Confess! The Civil War - The South - and the Church" is a summons to action and calls for a response. Highly Recommended.

    A complimentary copy of this book was received for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
