I truly would have expected from a man who graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary This book carefully picks parts of American history while taking selected scripture out of context in order to push a narrative built on hatred and avarice This is sophism to the tenth powerAfter reading many reviews I am very concerned for people’s views on “history” and history books To compare this book to be history would be to call Howard Zinn a historian and his book A People’s History of the United States a history bookWhat Jamar Tisby does is multifaceted He plays on emotions rather than objective facts and takes advantage of American ignorance of our and world historyI recommend anyone reading this divisive book to also supplement with other works in theology by Dr James White Dr Voddie Baucham Dr Norman Geisler Dr William Roach Dr RC Sproul and Dr Michael Brown for theological approaches and obtain other secular history which exposes slave masters both white and black as well as racism being exposed as not a sin or offense which can be or historically done by white people but all people of all colors in and outside the United States

Sadly Tisby's book would have been far sharper and effective if he had only given out advance drafts to thoughtful politically conservative evangelicals and had asked for their critiuesFor instance David French and Russell Moore come to mind They seem to be racially sensitive French has an adopted daughter from Ethiopia and both of them were under fire for their 2016 anti Trump stand Additionally French and Moore are both genuinely and passionately committed to pro life and religious freedom causesTisby also would have benefitted from learning a whole lot about conservative economic and political philosophy say from Thomas Sowell's Conflict of Visions Sowell happens to be African American Like most in academia Tisby exists in a liberal monoculture and simply does not understand how conservatives think or why they passionately hold some of the viewpoints that they doFor instance while Tisby's main axiom is racism never goes away; it just adapts he seems not to be willing to entertain the possibility that perhaps actual solutions to racism and racial disparities adapt over time as well Could it be that today's liberal ideas and policies are not always the most helpful at attaining either racial reconciliation or African American educational vocational and economic advancementMeanwhile it is all too tempting to attribute the rise of the Religious Right entirely to racism and ignore other complexities It was a big mistake for Tisby to have relied so heavily on Randall Balmer's deeply problematic narrative For starters if Southern Baptists didn't start out as uniformly pro life in the early 70's then that's because the SBC wasn't all that conservative back then The SBC's Conservative Resurgence began in 1979 Also Balmer is hardly an objective evangelical historian; rather he was part of that cottage industry of paranoid books about America's theocracy after George W Bush was reelected in 2004 Surely Balmer would never ever see left wing religious involvement in politics as similarly theocratic but would only praise such effortsAgain is it possible that some conservative evangelicals back in the 70's found Bob Jones' ban on interracial dating odious but also found the idea of governmental meddling in Christian institutions frighteningIf so then in fact their fear wasn't unwarranted Fast forward a few decades after the 1983 BJU SCOTUS 1983 and following identical legal logic the US Solicitor General in Obergefell 2015 realistically threatened the tax exempt status of every Christian church and para church organization which attempts to faithfully teach and live out the church's 2000 year tradition of biblically orthodox sexual ethicsTisby seems not to have engaged with any intelligent critics of the Black Lives Matter movement such as Heather MacDonald Although he does separate the organization from the hashtag slogan he glosses over the fact that Michael Brown's supposed Hands up Don't shoot cry was a hoax that galvanized the BLM movement He also doesn't mention that Michael Brown was violent even if unarmed and there appears to have been ample forensic evidence to have justly acuitted the cop Darren Wilson Eric Garner's death was horrific and the NYPD cop on the scene who was in charge of the chokehold Kizzy Adonis is African American Half of the cops who were responsible for transporting Freddie Gray are African American Riots in cities such as Ferguson and Balti have crippled the economy including minority owned businesses and cops pulled back on their police work which led to a significant rise in the homicide rate also affecting black livesTisby's description of the rise of The Fundamentals crowd in the early 20th c also didn't smell right to me Would I be shocked to find out that there was latent or overt racism within this movement No I would not However the main motive behind the publication of The Fundamentals was a reaction against higher biblical criticism in Germany which led to a lot of skepticism about the reliability of the biblical text Walter Rauschenbusch represented the heterodoxy that The Fundamentals intended to oppose Therefore since Rauschenbusch's social gospel was aligned with the heterodox Christian camp and fundamentalists today's evangelicals and fundamentalists wanted to clearly stand for orthodoxy the two camps parted waysHowever I would completely agree with Tisby Christian conversion and participating in God's plan for His new creation including a just and fair world never ought to have separated in the first place; they are two inextricably linked parts of the same GospelThe most horrific part of the book was the graphic description of lynchings However after reading the book it also occurred to me just how violent and grisly an act abortion really isHow is it that Tisby as part of a group of people who've been so devastatingly dehumanized and terrorized over the centuries in the US can't see how awful it is that we dehumanize human fetuses and the utterly grotesue and unjust violence we perpetrate on these innocent human victims as a result of denying them human rights I can understand that abortion is a wrenching and difficult subject and can genuinely sympathize with women who struggle with unplanned pregnancies However why can't Tisby even acknowledge that the pro life view treating the human fetus as worth far than a glob of expendable protoplasm is a genuine issue of conscience and basic human rightsI agree with Tisby that we white evangelicals would do well to learn and keep learning about our complicity with racism I think our voting for Trump was a disgrace and badly damaged the credibility of our Christian witness as well as grievously harming our minority brothers and sisters in Christ Unlike Tisby however I do understand the pressures that led conservative evangelicals to vote for Trump many of whom feeling that he was the best of two awful presidential optionsTisby obviously has a passion for racial justice and reconciliation as all Christians should There are so many racial wounds that need addressing not least within the evangelical churchHowever until progressives like him truly welcome conservatives to the table as conservatives and genuinely try to understand how conservatives think and what their cherished beliefs are and why there will be no racial reconciliation Either inside or outside the churchTisby's book is sadly a missed opportunity
