Overview

In this unique book, Pastor Eric Redmond confronts the important question of "Where are the black men in the African-American church?" with a candid approach that combines wisdom with a conversational tone.

Instead of side-stepping issues, Redmond converses with readers about some of their reasons for not going to church-the church seems geared toward women, the preacher is just an ordinary man, Islam appears to offer more for the black man, organized religion is not necessary, churches are just after your money-and approaches their skepticism with respect but also with corrective truth. On these and other topics, Where Are All the Brothers? speaks about the things that men think about in private or discuss at the barbershop when it comes to church and religion, challenging them to reexamine their long-held assumptions.

Redmond, who has used this material in a variety of settings with great success, also gives eight things to look for when considering a good church so that readers can find a healthy, biblical church home. And it's all in this unintimidating book that can easily be read in ten minutes a day.
