Overview

Since Columbus landed in the West Indies in 1492, Native American tribes have endured more than five centuries of abuse hypocrisy, indifference and bloodshed at the hands of the "Christian" white man. Despite this painful history, a number of Native Americans have found "The Jesus Way" and are proving to be a powerful voice for the Lord around the world. A full- blooded Lakota/Sioux whose bitterness toward whites was washed away by the blood of Christ, Richard Twiss shows that Native American Christians have much to offer the Church and can become a major force for reaching the lost. Full of wisdom, humor and passion, this book examines how the white Church can begin to break down the walls of anger, distrust and bitterness and move toward reconciliation and revival in our land.

    One Church Many Tribes fills a gap in Christian and Native American history like no other book in which I am familiar. Giving one to our church library in the morning. As participants in a Christmas toy drive to Rosebud, it means even more.

    Having read many Christian books, this one takes a fresh and very authentic approach. I recommend it.

    In December we were at Rosebud Indian Reservation, in the poorest county in the US, Todd County South Dakota. You do not need a road sign to know when you enter Rosebud. There is no sign of industry, poverty is evident. For 7 years we have been a pick up point for Desciples International Toy Drive to Rosebud, even though we are members of a Baptist Church which contribulted gererously. If your children received toys for Christmas, they are set apart from many Native American children.

    Awesome is our God. Thank you Richard Twiss for writing such an authoritive book on Native American History and a very direct analysis of segmented denominational Christianity. God is LOVE first of all, not a divider by doctrine. As individuals, we can never approach God's Holiness. Only through His son Jesus who died for us can we truly know God on a personal level.

    If it is the Native American who leads this nation to their knees, I will be in full support. 2 Chromicals 7:14 "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." God promises His eyes will be open and His ears attentive to our prayers. Go for it!
