Reconstructing the Gospel: Finding Freedom from Slaveholder Religion, explores American Evangelicalism versus a Biblical Evangelicalism.
Dear America tells the kind of story Americans love to celebrate. This is because, on the surface, it appears to be a vibrant example that the American Dream is alive and well.

White Fragility is one of the most difficult books I have read. This difficulty has nothing to do with the speech patterns of the author or the complexity of the material offered. Rather, it is difficult because it convicts.
Race Matters falls into the category of must read. While he goes about addressing issues relevant to Black Americans, his words also serve as an invitation for White Americans to gain a greater understanding of people our society systemically dishonors from its very founding.
