It is without question that the Black Church has come a long way since the days of slavery and legalized segregation. Through its trials and tribulations, the Church has stood its ground as a social and spiritual resource for African American communities. Yet, with these acknowledgments comes the question of what exactly the Black Church should look like in the twenty-first century.
Standing True to Our God highlights several examples of how facets of the modern Black Church experience are not reflecting the teachings of Christ and His apostles. In the spirit of love and appreciation for the Black Church in America, this book implores African American church members to strongly consider the need for biblical reformation in five crucial areas within the Church today.
“I would make this book required reading in every seminary and Bible College in this country! Mr. Moore’s wisdom, insight, research, convictions, and biblical knowledge are evident in every chapter. My prayer is that after you read the last page of Standing True To Our God, you would agree that reform is desperately needed in our churches today.”
