In the Easter issue of Cresset, from Valparaiso University, Harold Bush of Saint Louis University has a wonderful piece entitled "Studies of Race, Religion, and the American South." Bush discusses Edward J. Blum's books Reforging the White Republic and W. E. B. Du Bois: American Prophet, in addition to our work The Color of Christ. While Amazon reviewer "Soda Pop Sal" found "nothing interesting here" in our "ramblings-on," and another reviewer named Col. Takashi "cannot dis-recommend" the book enough, finding it a "severe manifestation of people getting weird ideas disconnected from reality," Professor Bush somehow managed to find much of interest in the work, and I thank him for the gracious review and discussion.
And while we're on the #colorofchrist: since its publication, we've been inundated with just about every conceivable Jesus image imaginable (most of them white guys, just as our book would predict, except for a great one one just sent by Lincoln Mullen, "The Hamitic Bible: Prepared for the Negro Race," which you can view here -- all evidence that no matter how much you research, there's always just so much more out there!).
But the one below, from blog contributor Seth Dowland, is definitely up there among the best. Sending this one out for all you 80s/90s music pop culture fans. Insert your own jokes in the comments section. Personally, though, would go with "Footlose" before the execrable "Highway to the Danger Zone." But that's just me.
