As the United States heads toward the 2008 presidential election, Harry Jackson presents his vision for what the new political agenda items will be for the church and how they line up with the issues and circumstances faced by African-Americans. Now is the moment in history when black and white churches in America must come together to direct the affairs of our nation. This emerging movement goes beyond old political labels of right and left. The day of blind party allegiance is over. Jackson explains how a coalition of black and white Evangelicals will prove unstoppable because it will promote both righteousness and justice, grounded in the same moral and biblical foundation that gave the Civil Rights movement its force. Offering both honesty and hope, this book will reach beyond black readers to everyone interested in social issues that plague the church and the nation as a whole.
As we are bombarded almost daily with the latest news on the presidential candidates or the newest political scandal, we lose focus on the important, far-reaching platforms that we as Christians should be whole-heartedly a part of. Pastor Jackson believes that churches hold the answer to this loss of focus and addresses it at length in The Truth in Black and White. Breaking down the walls of partisanship and stereotypes to uncover the poisonous roots, Jackson stands up for Christian justice and Godly righteousness coming from the church and into the public square. Above that, he issues a call back to truth as the impetus for arresting the downward spiral of culture, including politics, and correcting the course for the benefit of all Americans.
