The Color of Incomplete History: A Review Article (S. Donald Fortson III)

In this article, non-SBC author S. Donald Fortson III, Professor of Church History and Practical Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary (Charlotte, NC), reviews The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the American Church’s Complicity in Racism by Jemar Tisby, a past panel participant with the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission on the topic of racism. Fortson writes,

Throughout the book, one gets the impression that the historical survey is politically motivated. A number of his sources (see endnotes) are ideologically driven books opposed to conservative political perspectives. This ideological bias explains why Tisby’s account is so one-sided – he’s attempting to make a political argument, and scholarship that doesn’t fit the narrative he’s creating is excluded.
