Publishers Description Overcoming Racism. is a uniquely-inspired, educational journey that enlightens the reader in understanding the reasoning for racial hatred and how destructive it has been for humanity. Expect to see things from a new perspective, and lessons that have not been taught. Truth is the key element of the word of God, and spares no individual of shortcomings while encouraging everyone to make personal changes for the better. Racism exists to the extent that it does today because the church has abdicated its position as the only earthly representative of the Kingdom of Heaven authorized by God to provide the real examples of love, unity and fellowship. Many will take offense with the contents of this book as the strongholds are challenged, but many will find healing and restoration. Before racial hatred can be effectively challenged, it first must be understood and recognized as the spiritual cancer that it is. Dr. Melvin L. Johnson has a bachelor's degree in Religious Education, a Master's in Christian Counseling, and a Doctor of Ministry in Theology from Covington Theological Seminary of Rossville, GA. He serves as pastor of the Heart of Christ Community Church in Brazoria, Texas. He was born in the mid-fifties, and grew up in the small southern Texas town of Brazoria during the time when the civil rights movement was at its greatest height, and African American children in the United States represented a future of hope and achievement. At the age of ten, he began the quest for equality by pursuing to join the then segregated Little League Association. Forty years later he identifies and challenges America's institutions, ideologies and individuals who benefit from racial hatred even today. For him, the uncompromised Gospel of Jesus Christ has provided the courage to challenge the most formidable forces of resistance.

The Most Powerful Book On Racial Healing Ever! Oct 13, 2007
Overcoming Racism.Through the Gospel Solving the problem with racism requires the effort of every American. This book provides a road to solutions with history and perspective. Feedback from readers include staements such as ..."Its difficult to put down" and "No one has told me these things before!" Whether black, white or any color in between, this book is meant for you! It identifies those who are benefiting from racial unrest, whether religious, political or societal. I have learned so much- some things were shocking and difficult to accept- but truth is like that! As a citizen, I will commit to making America the place Dr. Martin Luther King could only Dream of. Also, as a Christian, I now realize the necessity for US to set the example to live together in TRUE harmony. See one of the most emotional moments a person could experience as whites get on their knees before a crowd of African Americans and ask for forgiveness for their racist past.
