Editorial Reviews

Review

"With trained head and tender heart the author enters the domain of the reader just as a physician enters the examining room. He responds to disturbing questions by giving biblical and practical prescriptions for help and healing."
Sheila M. Bailey, President, E. K. Bailey Ministries, Dallas

"I don't believe anyone could read this book without being compellingly affected. If you miss any other book this year, don't miss this one."
Paige Patterson, President, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Redmond gingerly affirms the black man while taking biblical truths to dispel myths surrounding the church. Men, keep this evangelistic tool in your pocket!"
Monique Robinson, Pastor of Women's Discipleship, Faithful Central Bible Church, Inglewood, California; Author of Longing for Daddy

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Pastor Eric C. Redmond writes with a burning passion for revitalization in the African American church. For Pastor Redmond, such revival begins with theology. While that word (theology) may terrify some, Pastor Redmond realizes how relevant theology is to everyday life.

In fact, "Where Are All the Brothers?" is "theology in disguise." It is a practical manual written with wit and wisdom in particular for the black male who has a litany of reasons for being unchurched.

Chapter by chapter in bite-size chunks, Pastor Redmond helps men to digest biblical and practical answers to questions they have about the value of Christianity and the Church. He challenges men to give him ten minutes for nine days. His prayer is that his male readers will be transformed by truth and in turn African American churches will experience a reformation as an army of African American men march back into leadership in church and society.

In many ways, Pastor Redmond writes like the great African American pastors of the past--Rev. Richard Allen, Bishop Daniel Alexander Payne, Pastor Peter Randolph, Pastor Lemeul Haynes, and so many other stalwarts of the faith. They share in common the courage of their conviction that God's truth sets men free.

Day by day, Redmond disabuses men of lies about Christ, Christianity, and the church. Day one: addressing hypocrites in the church. Day two: explaining the inspiration of Scripture. Day three: interacting about the role of men and women in the church. Day four: exploring the preacher's calling. Day five: contrasting what Islam claims to offer Black men and what Christ offers all men. Day six: discussing the church and money. Day seven: defending organized religion. Day eight: honoring the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Format: Paperback
Eric C. Redmond addresses many of the various excuses that men have for not attending church. Rather than dispute their reasoning, he confronts them. He doesn't try to justify reasons or behaviors of "church folk"; rather, his position is to point out the many reasons why men should attend.

Redmond tackles these issues head on. Instead of overwhelming the reader with scripture the reader may not quite be theologically ready for, he breaks it down into bite size morsels. He sets the pace by recommending they take ten minutes a day to read each chapter individually. This allows the lesson to marinate before he takes you into the next chapter.

This tiny book is packed full of valuable insights into the "how and why" it's important for men to take their appointed roles in today's church. The recommended reading at the end of the book were also excellent choices.

Format: Paperback
While the book is written almost like a tract - something to give to someone to convince them of something - I found it worthwhile to read as a future pastor who will have to wrestle with the diminishing number of "Y" chromosomes in the church. Redmond has given me, and all of us, some very good, solid, reasoned answers to a number of questions that can keep men from fully engaging in our churches; not to mention just showing up.

Good: I found this book not only informative and challenging, but extremely easy to read. Redmond begins with a basic plea for readers to give just 10 minutes a day for 9 days, and that is an adequate amount of time to cover this book. If you were to give it to somebody you were trying to persuade to come to church, any church, then that is a reasonable request, and could easily get through the book. If that is your reason for reading the book, make sure you follow it up with some good conversations regarding each chapter.

Not-so-Good: While I don't want to be nit-picky, I am not a big fan of reading books that overly dialogical. However, I think for what Redmond was trying to do, I don't know how you could have written it any other way. Its meant to be used as a resource to give to men you have friendships with over concerns regarding church involvement. The dialogical nature works for this purpose.

Highlights/Quotes: By far, Redmond does a great job all around. I think his chapters dealing with the allure of Islam for men, and the all time favorite, "Doesn't the church just want my money?" are his most insightful contributions to the issue.

Format: Paperback
I have to confess I don't read a lot of books for entertainment. I read books to find answers to life's riddles. I buy books like mechanics buy tools. I get them to show me how to fix stuff. I guess that's a man thing. But that's why I wanted to get this book.

All of us have noticed this problem, but we rarely say anything about it. It's huge, but too few try to solve it. Men have become an endangered species in the church! When I have been asked about the problem, I've searched my brain for deep ecclesiological, anthropological answers. But from now on I am going to tell churches to stockpile Eric Redmond's new release "Where are All the Brothers?"

The book is ingenious for its simplicity. Redmond doesn't write to pastors and theologians so they can pontificate about the problem. Why do that? These brothers are already in church. He writes directly to men who are playing hooky--and not in a scolding, or demeaning way, but like a smooth lawyer who's never lost a case because he knows his jury. Redmond knows his brothers, and he knows why they've stopped coming to church. So with honest answers, he point by point overcomes all of their objections. And the amazing thing to me is that he accomplishes this with chapters any brother will read because they are only a couple of pages long! If I ever get to meet Redmond, I am going to ask him to teach me the skill of being profound while keeping it real, clear, and brief.

If you are concerned about getting men back into the church, do what I am going to do. Stop talking about the problem, buy this book in bulk, and give it out to all of your male new visitors, your "come alone to church" married sisters, and then pray for God to bring a rain of men back into His church.
