Publisher's Description

How can an African-American consciousness and Reformed theology benefit each other? Where was God in the Atlantic Slave Trade? How does Christianity triumph among people historically oppressed in part by the church itself? Anthony Carter brings positive, informed responses to such questions, thereby enriching our understanding and furthering racial reconciliation. John Piper comments, "When I met Anthony Carter several years ago, I detected a rigorous mind, a righteous concern for racial justice, and a Reformed vision of God-a rare combination. Since then I have wanted to be a listener. Now this book makes that easier. May the Lord of nations use it to shape a powerful movement of God-centered Christians from all peoples who have tasted suffering."

"As an African American I am delighted with the publication of this book. It will serve as an excellent introduction to Reformed theology for the emerging black Reformed community in the U.S. I anticipate that it will be a great resource for church planters and anyone else seeking to reach the black community."
- Anthony Bradley

"A most edifying work. I suspect that generations to come will look back pun its publication as a milestone in the history of Reformed theology . . . a book that need to be written and even more importantly, needs to be read."
