For the Glory of God Alone Mar 11, 2005
How many times have you looked for a way to share the good news of Jesus to those you love? We are called as Christians to share the good news and God will do the work. Black or White is built on so many truths found in the Bible and wrapped together in a story that describes the struggles we have growing as Christians, fears we face, lessons we learn, and the war we are all fighting here on this Earth. In this mythical southern town in Mississippi we follow the short history of three generations of the Parker family. Inventive, amusing, magnetic, sad, alive with men and women and boys and girls with a truth and understanding that strike the soul, Black or White is a disciples tool wrapped in the art of fiction.
Black or White is the first piece of literature since the Bible that should be required reading for the entire human race. It takes the life of a Christian and the battles we fight, reporting on everything that happens in between with lucidity, wisdom, and drama. Mr. John Anderson has done nothing less than to create in the reader a sense of all that is profound, meaningful, and meaningless in life.

The subtitle for this book... Mar 2, 2005
The subtitle of this book could be: "Or, How Many Men Have to Die to Get Missy Parker Married Off?"
I really wanted to enjoy this book, which is written by a gifted storyteller and writer.
I felt cheated. The novelist sets the reader up to expect the protagonist to develop into a truly noteworthy evangelist or missionary. Three men give their lives so that Missy Parker can carry out her Christian gifts. And these three men(Mose Jr., David Patterson, and the conveniently demon-possesed Hull Dillworth) meet their ends for what? So Missy can emerge as an influential evangelist or humanitarian? No. So she can marry a man who forfeits his belief in philosophy for Christianity in the most anti-climatic conversion scene ever committed to paper. Oh, and quote Bible verses ad nauseum.
And who are these sneering, unpleasant people who live at Cat Lake, and how fast can we wall them up inside their sanctimonious little community? Sadly, Missy Parker is never likeable. She's grating, arrogant and never depicted as a loving or gracious Christian. She says she fears for the souls of the unconverted in her life, but she only offers them her bombastic conceit. The only demonstrations of humility and kindness are those by Mose, Mose Jr. and Pip, but they only exist to keep the grating central character alive so that she can recite platitudes and bask in her careless, mean-spirited tractor beam of sexual attractiveness.
Anderson can do better than this, and let's hope he does his next work of Christian fiction.
Gripping Feb 23, 2005
Rarely do I read a book that I can't put down. Black or White is the kind of book that gets the reader involved on the first page and holds on until the end leaving one sad that it is the end. I am anxiously awaiting the sequel.
For such a time as this !!! Feb 7, 2005
This is one of the best books I've ever read. It's got a timely subject and the characters are real. The church has been in need of this topic for some time now and I believe all will be touched and even lives changed as a result of this book. Three cheers for John Anderson and his talent for writing. Be Blessed as you read, Betty Dorsett
Great book. Jan 28, 2005
Great book. Each chapter ends with the reader needing to read more to find out what is going to happen. It is easy to read, exciting, sad, yet full of love between children - one is white and one is black.
