I Shall Not Be Moved: Racial Separation in Christian Worship
This work examines the ongoing perceptions and ill-conceived notions of both Black and White Christians, as it relates to tradition and familial worship habits, the understanding of sacred and secular domains, and the role that color and culture play in the separation of religious worshippers. I Shall Not Be Moved challenges the reader to examine the issue presented based upon a biblical mandate for unity and love within the body of Christ. Taking into consideration today's multiethnic, multiracial, and otherwise diverse national demographics the church still exists primarily along the color and cultural divide. This divide is deeply rooted in American religious history, culture, and tradition. Ultimately, the question Professor Terriel R. Byrd seeks to answer in this work is: Does this separation hinder the Christian teachings of inclusion and unity?
