    • Reconstructing The Gospel (Unabridged)


      I am a man torn in two. And the gospel I inherited is divided.
      Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove grew up in the Bible Belt in the American South as a faithful church-going Christian. But he gradually came to realize that the gospel his Christianity proclaimed was not good news for everybody. The same Christianity that sang, Amazing grace, how sweet the sound also perpetuated racial injustice and white supremacy in the name of Jesus. His Christianity, he discovered, was the religion of the slaveholder.

      Just as Reconstruction after the Civil War worked to repair a desperately broken society, our compromised Christianity requires a spiritual reconstruction that undoes the injustices of the past. Wilson-Hartgrove traces his journey from the religion of the slaveholder to the Christianity of Christ. Reconstructing the gospel requires facing the pain of the past and present, from racial blindness to systemic abuses of power. Grappling seriously with troubling history and theology, Wilson-Hartgrove recovers the subversiveness of the gospel that sustained the church through centuries of slavery and oppression, from the civil rights era to the Black Lives Matter movement and beyond.

      When the gospel is reconstructed, freedom rings both for individuals and for society as a whole. Discover how Jesus continues to save us from ourselves and each other, to repair the breach and heal our land.

    • Called To The Fire (Unabridged)


      The last place on earth young Charles Johnson wanted to go was Mississippi during the heat of the Civil Rights Movement. Me and the Lord had a talk all the way all those miles. ‘Lord, I have seen those dogs eatin’ those people up! I have seen them lock the doors, Lord.’ When I got there I looked for black people to be hangin’ from street lights! With deep faith and firm conviction he followed the call of God on his life and journeyed straight into his greatest fears.

      This is the true story of Dr. Charles Johnson, an African American preacher who entered Mississippi in 1961 during the summer of the Freedom Rides. Fresh out of Bible School Johnson hesitantly followed his Call to pastor in Mississippi, a hotbed for race relations during the early 1960’s. Unwittingly thrust into the heart of a national tragedy, the murder of three Civil Rights activists, he overcame fear and adversity to become a leader in the Civil Rights movement.

    • Unwitting Pioneer : A Journey From Jim Crow Thru Worldly Success To Spiritu


      I quickly began to realize that, regardless of race, at the end of the day, one’s success in a particular organization depends on one’s contribution to the objectives of that organization. Therefore, I had to create a win-win for the organization. The more I won, the better I felt and the more productive I became for the organization. In addition, as a pioneer to my white peers, I was representing all black America. I was removing myths and preconceived notions about the intellectual capacity of blacks. Separate water fountains for blacks were common in the South in the 1950s. Marshall Isler III grew up in the Jim Crow South. Despite the social pressure for him to stay in his ‘place,’ Isler forged ahead by obtaining a degree in engineering from Howard University and becoming one of few black officers in the navy at that time. Little did he know, these were just his first steps toward becoming An Unwitting Pioneer. After forgoing a civil service super-grade at 38, Isler joined Parametric, the largest black construction management firm, where he orchestrated a 17 million dollar parking garage deal with the city of Philadelphia. From there, he entered the world of entrepreneurship, only to find that others expected him to stay in his ‘place’ in business as well. Follow Isler as he breaks boundaries, blazes trails for the black businessman, and finds God in An Unwitting Pioneer.
