“ Between the Christianity of this land and the Christianity of Christ I recognize the widest possible difference” –Frederick Douglass 1845The prophets of old were not easy to listen to because they did not flatter  They did not cajole They spoke hard words that often chafed and unsettled their listeners Like the Old Testament prophets and recent prophetic. If you already know what you think about the SJW movement and their relationship to the reformed tradition this book will not change your mind This will be red meat for the already woke and cringy to MacArthurites There were parts that I thought were excellent critiues of the way evangelicalism has had a truncated gospel proclamation but the pieces that Eric Mason sees as missing get filled in with some nonsensical and short sighted solutions There s a reason why the woke are so friendly with democratic and socialist ideals and are sexual egalitarians When women are preaching and teaching in woke churches it won t be long before the liberalism sweeps them away like the mainline denominations The 7 Components of Transformative Organizing Theory recognize the widest possible difference” –Frederick Douglass 1845The prophets of old were not easy to listen to because they did not flatter  They did not cajole They spoke hard words that often chafed and unsettled their listeners Like the Old Testament prophets and The Big Golden Book of Poetry recent prophetic.

Short thoughts I am mixed on the title There is nothing wrong with it but those that are in most need of the book are probably those that would be most turned off by the title Woke has a connotation among people that are skeptical of the need for racial justice and I think I would have titled it differently But the book is worth reading The early sections of history and biographical sketches about how the church has been on the wrong side of injustice specially racial justice are well done But I think the strongest sections of the book are about the prophetic role of the church and discussion of the prophetic in the Old Testament The final section is about how to be active in the fight against injustice This is a descriptive look at Mason s church not a prescriptive descriptions These are all in the line of John Perkins who wrote an introduction to the book My longer thoughts are on my blog at
