Beyond Roots II is the logical second step in the cultural literary pilgrimage of both Rev. McKissic and Dr. Evans. As two bibliocentric evangelical African American Pastors, they seek to flush out the errors in the biblical interpretations of the history of the Black race in a scholarly and pragmatic way. McKissic and Evans are determined to continue their wrestling until they can penetrate the truth about a significant Black presence in the Bible, not only in the African American community, but for the benefit of the Christian church at large.In this collaborative work, McKissic and Evans fill in the gaps between their works to show why a proper biblical view of the Black race is essential if Black people are to recognize, understand and appreciate their position in God's eternal program. This work further authenticates the Black presence in Scripture through the eyes of Black and White biblical scholars while pointing to the racial abuse of historically accepted biblical scholarship. In addition, they reveal the continuing Black presence in the development of the church and theology through the leadership of the African church fathers and beyond. However, this work is designed not only to unfold the divine saga of the Black race in Scripture, but to make an analysis of how people must use that knowledge to address the contemporary crisis that African Americans currently face. It is designed to challenge Black and White Christians alike to root their racial heritage and pride in Scripture if they are to avoid the extremes of both racial elitism and racial inferiority.Is it an accurate and honest portrayal of history to depict all Bible characters as European? Are the images of European Bible characters a result of objective historical research or the personal biases of the image producers? Do these images reinforce the notion of White superiority? Is it true that Moses, Solomon, the Queen of Sheba and Jesus were of Black lineage?There are some startling answers to these questions packed between the covers of this book. Rev. William Dwight McKissic, Sr. and Dr. Tony Evans explore the depth of the African contribution to Christianity from the earliest days of human history. This well-documented, fact-filled volume sheds light on the biblical legacy belonging to people of African descent. And it's a challenge to Christians of diverse ethnic backgrounds to root their racial heritage and pride in Scripture, rather than culturally- limited depictions of Biblical characters.This book will enable you to authoritatively respond to the old Negro spiritual "If Anybody Ask you Who I Am" by saying, "I have been, I am and I always will be a child of the King."
