Editorial Reviews

Review

America is in deep trouble. White supremacy should not be the guiding principle of an enlightened society, and people of faith need to be at the forefront of changing the paradigm, just as they were during the periods of abolition and civil rights activism. The only way to transcend the past is to confront it honestly, and Plantation Jesus is a powerful guide for doing just that.

Sharon Leslie Morgan, coauthor of Gather at the Table and founder of Our Black Ancestry


Skot Welch and Rick Wilson imagine a church that floods both sanctuary and streets with Christ's love. Anything less would be a failed life. Plantation Jesus will challenge you. You may not like what it says. But please ask the Lord for help as you read. Then ask Jesus to use you as a neighbor and healer, as one who binds up the wounds of the brokenhearted.

-- Scott Hagan, president of North Central University



This book is a healing triumph. It exposes white Christian supremacy with fearless urgency. Then it invites broken believers to dare dismantle the worship of racism in exchange for surrender to the reconciling Christ. A courageous call: may all God's people respond in kind.


Patricia Raybon, author of My First White Friend


Plantation Jesus is a well-researched and straightforward work that will contribute to the dismantling of racism especially among Christians if readers will heed the authors words. For too many years I have felt isolated and marginalized simply for bringing up the topic of racism; as an African American Christian leader, I am grateful for sisters and brothers who challenge the idolatry of racism. Plantation Jesus takes the spotlight off a false Jesus, who is embraced by too many American Christians, and puts that light on the biblical Jesus, one who rebukes oppressors and sets captives free. Please read this book, give a copy to somebody in your church, and then put the words into practice.

--

Dennis Edwards, senior pastor of Sanctuary Covenant Church



I ve long felt that churches, filled with people of faith, ought to be the vessels within which the difficult, transformative conversations about race could be held. Yet for the most part, this has not been the case. Plantation Jesus boldly shows us why not, and then shows us a path forward. Read this book. Then get busy.


Thomas Norman DeWolf, executive director of Coming to the Table and author of Inheriting the Trade


Plantation Jesus is a unique book that is real and raw about the challenging nature of conversations about race, ethnicity, faith, and the role of the church. The examples and stories provide a practical view of the long-term implications of the church when it unwittingly perpetuates racism. Plantation Jesus also provides hope that an authentic view of Jesus can re-emerge if people are willing to have the difficult conversations.

-- Kyle Ray, lead pastor of Kentwood Community Church
