On Being Black and Reformed, by Anthony J. Carter

RTS distance-learning has a thing where the church can put up part of the tuition and RTS knocks off a matching ammount, so you can end up only paying a third of the cost. Maybe an "accelerated" 2-year program could be designed for folks who have a basic good knowlege of the Bible, plus some experience, e.g, the COGIC guy, that would focus on systematic theology and/or be tailored to the student's particular needs. This way we could get some more educated black clergy on the ground planting churches, then we could have sister-churches that had joint activities and get to know each other.

I'm just curious if any more folks have read this book yet. I know I posted this thread during the "holiday" break. I'm sure some folks are back now from vacation. Any more reflections and comments on this book?

I wonder what our black reformed brethren think of the oft-repeated instances of reformed churches and pastors romanticizing the Old South and the Confederacy - even from the pulpit.

I read and liked the book and met the man and even attended and all black church for a year, but I don't recall this point ever being addressed in the book.

Well there is a problem with romanticizing anything, because no time period or person was perfect. But there are many worse places to romanticize than the Old South and the Confederacy.
