It contained some good information. There just isn't much out there in terms of good resources by African Americans. It's just an attempt to recruit blacks into calvinism. Most thinking blacks won't touch this.Unfortunately, most African American resources are either of the liberal persuasion, word faith/prosperity theology. Or some form of liberation theology. And now there are a few blacks that have graduated from a couple of Reformed Seminaries pushing that theology with its strict adherences. You'd do best to actually stay away from it. The African American experience concepts I can deal with, it's the calvinist stuff being promoted that bothers me. Blacks that know better won't pick it up. If christians are interested in racial reconciliation, there are other books that do a better job than this one.

This work is a must read for every Christian in America. From those engaged in pulpit ministry to those in academia, "On Being Black and Reformed" will reveal the the missing link in how the majority of Americans view our Christian heritage.
