TAKING APART BOOTSTRAP THEOLOGY

Gospel of Generosity and Justice

Author Terrell Carter unites scholarly critique with practical wisdom in this new book that exposes the racist and classist assumptions entangled in the rugged individualism of what he calls “bootstrap theology.” Dismantling both the impossible idiom of “pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps” and the social theory of Marx’s Protestant Work Ethic, Carter challenges the reader to advance a more faithful gospel, one that extends a spirit of generosity and a call to social justice for all God’s people.

GOD IN THE GHETTO

A Prophetic Word Revisited

At long last, the reissue of the classic book, God In The Ghetto by the late, great William Augustus Jones, Jr. With eerily striking resonance to present day affairs, the new edition includes Jones’ seminal analysis of systemic racism, the integral role of the church in birthing and perpetuating it, and the Black church’s response. Sociological in framing, theological in foundation and principles, and practical in application, Jones deconstructs racism in America and offers up a responsive solution.

WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR SOME

The Bible, the Constitution, and Racism in America

In this important work, Smith examines how our country's foundational documents—the Bible and the Constitution—have failed people of color and asks whether those whom a nation has considered “we the problem” can ever become “we the people” who are celebrated in the Preamble to the Constitution. What will it take to reclaim the transforming and affirming power of God and government to secure liberty and justice for all?

Fundamentals of Womanist Leadership

African American women have survived nearly 400 years of oppression by crafting a culture of resistance, perseverance in the struggle, and the ability to adapt while remaining undergirded by faith. Using the biblical story of Joseph’s exile and rise to power in Egypt, author and pastor Debora Jackson highlights leadership fundamentals gleaned from that story and from the stories of black women’s experiences that may be redeemed for the good of ourselves and our organizations.

ENVISIONING THE REIGN OF GOD

Preaching for Tomorrow

What we believe about the kingdom of God deeply affects how we relate to the world we inhabit here and now. Mumford takes the Christian study of “last things” (eschatology) and makes it practical for pastors and church leaders today. “Eschatology is not just about how humanity will be judged on the last day,” she argues, “but how we live our lives every day.” Each chapter considers the eschatological beliefs of a different preacher and how those beliefs shape the style and content of that leader’s ministry.
