✏America s Original Sin Book Summary : America's problem with race has deep roots, with the country's foundation tied to the near extermination of one race of people and the enslavement of another. Racism is truly our nation's original sin. "It's time we right this unacceptable wrong," says bestselling author and leading Christian activist Jim Wallis. Fifty years ago, Wallis was driven away from his faith by a white church that considered dealing with racism to be taboo. His participation in the civil rights movement brought him back when he discovered a faith that commands racial justice. Yet as recent tragedies confirm, we continue to suffer from the legacy of racism. The old patterns of white privilege are colliding with the changing demographics of a diverse nation. The church has been slow to respond, and Sunday morning is still the most segregated hour of the week. In America's Original Sin, Wallis offers a prophetic and deeply personal call to action in overcoming the racism so ingrained in American society. He speaks candidly to Christians--particularly white Christians--urging them to cross a new bridge toward racial justice and healing. Whenever divided cultures and gridlocked power structures fail to end systemic sin, faith communities can help lead the way to grassroots change. Probing yet positive, biblically rooted yet highly practical, this book shows people of faith how they can work together to overcome the embedded racism in America, galvanizing a movement to cross the bridge to a multiracial church and a new America.

✏America s Original Sin Book Summary : CAN YOU HANDLE THE TRUTH? This powerful work by K. Gerald Torrence is a collection of thirty-four reflective essays that explore the gritty truth about structural racism and white privilege in America. Torrence is interested in nothing more and nothing less than the truth. And in America's Original Sin, he explores the painful truth about the four-hundred-year odyssey of the Negro in America-the scourge of racism that stretches back to the arrival of the first slave ship in 1619 and continues today, insidiously, despite the election of the nation's first black president. Exposing the delusional falsehoods that keep the troubling reality of black lives hidden from view, this book speaks truth to the economic, political, and social forces that collude, with ample help from the mainstream media, to sweep the lack of progress toward freedom and equality under the rug. From cable news to professional sports to the US Justice Department and President Barack Hussein Obama himself, no one and no topic is off limits as Torrence takes readers on a fearlessly honest journey through the eyes of today's African-American. With the naked truth exposed, America's Original Sin ultimately issues a call to mobilize a return to the rich heritage of black America.

✏Evangelical Ethics Book Summary : Just as it is impossible to understand the American religious landscape without some familiarity with evangelicalism, one cannot grasp the shape of contemporary Christian ethics without knowing the contributions of evangelical Protestants. This newest addition to the Library of Theological Ethics series begins by examining the core dynamic with which all evangelical ethics grapples: belief in an authoritative, inspired, and unchanging biblical text on the one hand, and engagement with a rapidly evolving and increasingly post-Christian culture on the other. It explores the different roles that scholars and popular figures have played in forming evangelicals' understandings of Christian ethics. And it draws together the contributions of both senior and emerging figures in painting a portrait of this diverse, vibrant, and challenging theological and ethical tradition. This book represents the breadth of evangelical ethical voices, demonstrating that evangelical ethics involves nuance and theological insight that far transcend any political agenda.

✏Project America Book Summary : PROJECT AMERICA: Memoirs of Faith and Hope to Win the Future, is one of the most impactful and relevant literary works of our time. The author, Dr. Marshall E. Hatch, sheds light on the timeless maxim that "each generation must chart its own course." In looking back to Dr. King's global vision, he conscientiously looks forward to summon the probing question "Where do we go from here?" Project America offers a nostalgic yet visionary memoir that weaves together scenes from the author's personal journey with historical analysis and commentaries to address contemporary public policy issues. In his expansive, thoughtful, and powerful treatise, Dr. Hatch presents us with the challenge to move forward, beyond the sins of America's shameful history of slavery to a "symphony" for winning the future. In this literary treasure-trove, Hatch's four symphonic movements unfold as the pathway to fulfilling the American promise, including a massive investment in education, adapting to the changing complexion of world power, embracing environmental stewardship, and renewing our faith to reengage the social covenant with the American people. Through Project America, we reflect upon Chicago's and the nation's past. While learning from Hatch's insights, we are encouraged to draw from the wellsprings of our faiths and to act purposefully together to achieve "a brand new world." Project America is truly within our grasp; therefore, let us heed Dr. Hatch's clarion call to make a brighter future start happening now.

Dingas newest book is a sequel to Navigating the Contradictions of America and explores disparities between Americas past and present, from the perspective of an immigrant. Featuring characters both real and fictional, Dinga shares his observations about the realities of making a new life in a new country, with an occasional flashback to the former home. The desire to immigrate to America is one shared by people all over the world, people who are often unaware of what it takes to thrive in a competitive, capitalist world where nothing is the same as before. Settling down in a new environment and navigating the politics and stresses of finding a job are just two of the aspects of culture shock a new immigrant will face. Expectations and responsibilities from those back home also add to the new immigrants challenges, and Dinga offers his suggestions on how to thrive under those stresses as well. He speaks not only to the potential immigrant but to those officials in power on either side of the process as well. Learning to make the right choices when presented with so many options is another life lesson addressed. The American society, freedoms, choices, and government are envied in many corners of the world, and Dinga explores how that perception influences the decision to start the journey. People need to know that living in America has its challengeschallenges not often imagined when the desire to immigrate pushes them to cross deserts, oceans, and unfriendly skies.
