    Tell the truth book

    This book tell the truth and explains why 80% of our black men are locked up, why 72% of all the new HIV/AIDS case are black women, and why our youth are confessed and lost. You must get this book for everyone in your family. I have read it 3 times and each time I find something new.

    A Must Read....

    I am not an avid reader, but once I began reading this book, I could not put it down! It is a powerful and convicting book that should challenge and motivate everyone. Bishop Dixon stands strong and bring to print most of the things that everyone knows 'or thinks' and offers answers to the question.

    Enlightening & Truthful

    This book is Awesome! Truthful! Enlightening! Most of the things written in this book allows the reader to understand and make some sense of the demise of some of the African American communities throughout the USA. A must read for all americans, but especially African Americans! My hope is that Oprah would have Bishop James Dixon on her show to promote this book! I wish the rappers would read this book to understand why some feel their music is a destruction to the African American community! Tell everyone to tell someone about this book. A must read!

    A Total Truth!

    A wake-up call for Black America and the rest of America! This information needed to be presented and I am glad that Bishop Dixon was bold enough to present it and with such loving kindness and concern.

    If Dr. King and Malcolm X decided to co-write a book, IF GOD IS SO GOOD, WHY ARE BLACKS DOING SO BAD would be the end result. Like King, James Dixon has a dream, and like X, he has the means necessary to teach us how to achieve the dream. Not only will you have flashbacks to the daring 60s, you will have visions of a better future for our people. No longer will we have to wander in the wilderness of despair after reading and applying this book. It is accessible, exciting, and informative! A must-have for your library.

It is all of our resposibilities to assist in the deplorable state of our youth and to re-oreintate this misguided gereration by lending a helping hand to help them get back on track. Thank you Bishop Dixon for opening oue eyes and stepping out on Faith to challenge us all!
