Item description for When All God's Children Get Together: A Memoir of Baptists and Race (Mercer Church Resources) by Emmanuel McCall...

Baptists in the South were once considered the last bastions of segregation. From 1957 to 1995, God was at work changing the attitudes of those opposed to the acceptance of all people. The change was so phenomenal that Dr. C. Peter Wagner at Fuller Theological Seminary called Southern Baptists the most open and diverse denomination in the nation. This change did not come by accident. College and seminary professors, denominational servants, women in the Woman's Missionary Union in local churches, average laypeople and many other unnamed persons made it happen. This book tells how God used people and events to bring about unhearalded changes. The book is written from the author's point of view, therefore it is limited in scope. However, because the author had a national platform, the book reflects that perspective as well.

Reviews - What do customers think about When All God's Children Get Together: A Memoir of Baptists and Race (Mercer Church Resources)?

A Needed Written Work  Mar 4, 2008
When All God's Children Get Together: A Memoir of Baptists and Race (Mercer Church Resources)
The book is on the mark as far as relations between races, especially in the religious domain. I lived during the time referenced and I can relate. Dr. McCall shows his involvement in the Southern Baptist Association and the historical actions that resulted. He has cataloged those actions very well. Hopefully, the children of this generation will read the book. The information presented in this book will help them deal with the events that are happening in the world today.
When All God's Children Get Together  Sep 21, 2007
This is a book geared to a very specific audience. It is written with clarity and substance and it is a poignant picture of the things that have occurred regarding racism among Baptists in Kentucky. There is a lot here to educate those who are interested in the progressive movement of racial understanding in the United States. In addition it chronicles the life of one religious leader as he became more spiritually aware and more politically astute.
