God in the Ghetto

A Prophetic Word Revisited
  • By Jennifer Jones Austin, William Augustus Jones Jr
Product Description

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.
