  • Myth Of Equality


    Is privilege real or imagined? It’s clear that issues of race and equality have come to the forefront in our nation’s consciousness. Every week yet another incident involving racial tension splashes across headlines and dominates our news feeds. But it’s not easy to unpack the origins of these tensions, and perhaps we wonder whether any of these issues really has anything to do with us. Ken Wytsma, founder of The Justice Conference, understands these questions. He has gone through his own journey of understanding the underpinnings of inequality and privilege. In this timely, insightful book Wytsma unpacks what we need to know to be grounded in conversations about today’s race-related issues. And he helps us come to a deeper understanding both of the origins of these issues and of the reconciling role we are called to play as ministers of the gospel. Inequality and privilege are real. The Myth of Equality opens our eyes to realities we may have never realized were present in our society and world. And we will be changed for the better as a result.

  • Deacons In Todays Black Baptist Church


    What does it mean to be a deacon in today’s black Baptist church?

    Respected author and pastor Rev. Dr. Marvin McMickle explores the scriptural basis and historical context for the deacon ministry in the black Baptist church, and addresses the practical issues related to this ministry today:

    What personal qualities should a candidate for deacon possess?
    What does the ministry of deacons entail?
    What relationship should exist between the pastor and deacons?
    What about training, term of service (if any), and women deacons?
    Models of contemporary deacon ministry, illustrated by case studies, provide a twenty-first century look at this first century ministry.
