Reviews - What do our customers think?
People of color are often conflicted when viewing the message of the Gospels, despite the overwhelmingly large numbers who consider themselves as "Christian". For African Americans, there has always seemed to be a disconnect between a faith which has been used at various times to justify the enslavement and degrading of an entire people, and questions are raised about the relative negativity toward blackness and black people within what is the normal canon of Christianity.

Some of these questions have been increasingly addressed by scholars in the Black church tradition who, armed with research and additional intellectual armor and tools, have sought out the origins and resulting historical praxis of systematic racism within the church. One cannot effectively minister to a people from a sacred text which seems to imply that an entire people are accursed, and destined to be enslaved merely because of their color.

In FROM EDEN TO EGYPT: The Book of Genesis Revisited, Dr. Michael Williams has constructed a very readable, and easy to follow exposition which deserves to be on the bookshelf of any Christian. With sound scholarship and methodology, Dr. Williams utilizes history, archaeology and anthropology to outline the "mise-en-scene" and social backdrop of the Old Testament and ancient peoples to delineate what he feels is the proper interpretation of the book of Genesis and its importance to the liberation of the African American.

The book is, and would be, a welcome adjunct to any biblical study program undertaken at the church or community level. Because of its organization, the book lends itself easily to being taught as "units", and also each chapter has its footnotes grouped at the end of the chapter for ease in locating further resources.

For the person of color interested in adding to their biblical knowledge, this book makes a welcome addition and for people charged with developing church religious education programs, it would make a valuable tool to be used by teachers of adult and young adult groups, especially in urban situations.
