Beyond Roots: In Search of Blacks in the Bible
In “Beyond Roots: In Search of Blacks in the Bible,” Rev. William Dwight McKissic launches a search of his own, taking us from the days of Kunta Kinte to the very birth of humanity. His exegetical and historical perspectives shed light on important considerations for all Black believers:*Were there prominent Black characters in the Bible? Who were they? What role did they play?*Were any of the biblical writers Black?*Is there biblical evidence of a “curse” on dark-skinned people?*Did Black people receive Christ in slavery, or did they bring their faith with them to the shores of America?*Were there Black people on the earth before the days of Noah?*What role did Africans play in the early days of the Christian faith?”Beyond Roots: In Search of Blacks in the Bible” picks up where traditional theological training leaves off and restores to Black Christians their biblical birthright.
