Book Spotlight (New Blog Category)

From presidents to doctors to inventors to bus drivers, African Americans have made significant contributions to American society at large. This is no less true when it comes to the Christian evangelical world, all of which is by God’s grace and gifting.  Our songs have been adopted and adapted. Our sermons and services (worship and also outreach) are lauded as being Christ-centered, biblically-solid, holistic, creative, rich and jubilant. The list could go on and on.

But what I am most excited about is our (specifically Black Pastors and Theologians) contribution to Christian literature, particularly in the categories of Theology, Biblical Studies, and Christian Living.  African American believers have been writing such works for decades; persons like Dr. Tony Evans, Dr. Cleophus J. LaRue, Thabiti Anyabwile, and my Pastor, Dr. Karry D. Wesley, to just name a few. So this is not a new phenomenon.  However, it is the new crop of Black evangelical authors, of which I am grateful to be a part, who are publishing Christ/Gospel-centered, biblically-faithful books that encourages my soul, and I want to do my part in promoting them.

So with that, I am introducing a new category here on my blog entitled “Book Spotlight.” This will not be posts reviewing books in their entirety and marking out strengths and weaknesses, but rather, as the title suggests, simply highlighting them with the hope that you will support by purchasing a copy or copies.

It is my sincere prayer that this feature will direct you to books that after reading them will produce spiritual fruit in your life (or in the lives of others) to the glory of God in Christ.
