At long last, the reissue of the classic book, God in the
Ghetto by the late, great William “Bill” Augustus Jones. With eerily
striking resonance to present day affairs, the new edition includes Jones’
seminal analysis of systemic racism, the integral role of the church in
birthing and perpetuating it, and the Black church’s response. Sociological in
framing, theological in foundation and principles, and practical in
application, Jones deconstructs racism in America and offers up a responsive solution.
Edited by Jennifer Jones Austin, Jones’ daughter, the book includes several
never-before published sermons of the preaching giant, and features a foreword
by Michael Eric Dyson, an afterword by Michael A. Walrond, and essays from
notable leaders including William J. Barber, James A. Forbes, Frederick D.
Haynes, Claybon J. Lea, Marvin A. McMickle, Otis Moss III, J. Alfred Smith Sr.,
Al Sharpton, Jacqueline Thompson, and Aundreia Alexander.
