Editorial Reviews

Review

"Johnny Bernard Hill s work, The First Black President, is clearly timely and immensely significant.Coming at a time when the 2008 presidential election is still fresh in our minds, it will attract wide attention among academics, politicians, church leaders, and many others in the public square." - Lewis V. Baldwin, Professor of Religious Studies, Vanderbilt University

"This insightful book provides a sympathetic assessment of Barack Obama s political philosophy and proposed social policies. Much attention is given to the similarities and differences between Obama and Martin Luther King, Jr. This book should be read by all who have specific questions about how the Obama presidency will help African Americans in general and especially those who are the most vulnerable among them." - Peter J. Paris, Professor Christian Social Ethics, Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary
