Biblical Black History

by CJ Wilson

Biblical Black History will challenge the traditional vantage point of biblical readers and scholars. This book is a testament to the fallen ancestors who didn't have a chance to tell the younger generation hidden gems of REAL HISTORY. The Bible, the world's all-time best selling book, is the main source from which we pull the Truth of history, not his-story.


From Adam to you, the reader, looking at the terms DUST, DARKNESS and or BLACK takes on a whole new meaning. For many years these words have been used as derogatory terms toward black people. Learning how to read or write those same words or any of the English language for that matter, made black people subject to being beaten, flogged, whipped, or even lynched. Teaching the WORD of God was for white men only, especially in the South. Eventually, times changed whereas now the most prominent ministers in America are predominately black. But something very deceptive also happened during that transitional period: REAL history was overlooked while a whole group of Americans were NOT told about their attachment to God's handiwork. Biblical Black History is a brief study that challenges the reader to look at history from a perspective that's different from any book you've EVER read. The writer takes his time to explain how hidden elements of race have been overlooked from an educational, racial, artistic, and historian's point of view. Most readers look at history as a boring subject. Most bible readers look at the history sections within the book as wasted pages or totally ignore them altogether. Most history books are perceived as old people books that don't relate to this generation or time. Well, this book is a challenge to ALL the misconceptions of how history is viewed and received. It's said that the best medicine you can take ,outside of a smile, is usually distasteful but good for you. Perhaps this quick read is that medicine that can help heal a sick and divided world, beginning with you. Bon Appetit!
