What People are Saying About This
"Gives great acclamation to black church worship, black preaching, and the black Christian experience, rightly showing the strength of Reformed theology for these traditions. I hope Experiencing the Truth will be an impetus to move the African-American church from the self-deprecating darkness of theological liberalism into the divinely nourishing light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."
—Eric C. Redmond, Assistant Professor of Bible, Moody Bible Institute; Pastor of Adult Ministries, Calvary Memorial Church, Oak Park, Illinois
"Provides a biblical diagnosis and prescription for what ails the African-American church and much of the larger church world as well. From theology to preaching to worship and Christian spirituality, these veterans of the church and pulpit apply the scalpel of truth to every major area of church life."
—Thabiti Anyabwile, pastor, Anacostia River Church, Washington, D. C.; author, What Is a Healthy Church Member?
"The authors show no fear as they tackle tough issues facing the African-American church in particular and the evangelical church in general. I say get it, read it, and discuss it."
—Louis C. Love Jr., Pastor, New Life Fellowship Church, Vernon Hills, Illinois
