Woke Church: An Urgent Call for Christians in America to Confront Racism and Injustice
Dr. Eric Mason challenges the church in America: Get up, sleeper, and rise up from the dead. It’s time to take a hard look at our history and stand together against the indignities and injustice in our world – to understand that justice is both theological and sociological – that there is no intimacy with God without justice in one’s heart.
No more waiting. No more sleeping. Christ our King is coming back, and He’ll be looking for a woke church.

"Between the Christianity of this land, and the Christianity of Christ, I recognize the widest possible difference." Frederick Douglass, 1845
The prophets of old were not easy to listen to because they did not flatter. They did not cajole. They spoke hard words that often chafed and unsettled their listeners. Like the Old Testament prophets, and more recent prophetic voices like Frederick Douglass, Dr. Eric Mason calls the evangelical church to a much-needed reckoning. In a time when many feel confused, complacent, or even angry, he challenges the church to:
Be Aware to understand that the issue of justice is not a black issue, its a kingdom issue. To learn how the history of racism in America and in the church has tainted our witness to a watching world.
Be Redemptive to grieve and lament what we have lost and to regain our prophetic voice, calling the church to remember our gospel imperative to promote justice and mercy.
Be Active to move beyond polite, safe conversations about reconciliation and begin to set things aright for our soon-coming King, who will be looking for a WOKE CHURCH.
