Have you ever thought what it might feel like to be a minority black face in a majority white church?

Have you ever noticed how many male, white theologians are referenced in church sermons?

Have you ever questioned the power structures and pathways to leadership within the church and thought, are these as inclusive as they could be?

It's time for the church to start talking about race.

Ben Lindsay, pastor of Emmanuel Church London, leads this conversation, offering eye-opening insights into the black experience, and challenging the perceived 'status quo' in white majority churches. Nothing is beyond his scope: music, history, leadership, social justice and theology itself.

After each chapter, he offers questions and personal insights in order to best engage his readers with the topic, and suggests practical tips at the end of the book which could help to combat some of the problems he sees.
