In the renewed interest in unlearning racism and the desire to become “anti-racist” we are restarting the African Descent Liberation Theology Book Club (ALTBC).

The books selected are not all theological in nature but are designed to talk about issues that can spark conversation and help our understanding of how we can better live as one in Christ.

We will meet at 10am EST / 9am CST on the 4th Saturday of each month via ZOOM (Link information is above).

Pastor Ron Bonner will be the primary discussion host but from time to time other hosts will be invited to enrich our understanding. If you or you know someone that would like to co-host one of the readings, please contact Ron Bonner or an ADLA Southeastern team member and we will gladly include you.

Please feel free to share with your networks.

The following is the reading list through the end of the 1st quarter of 2021, all books should be available online or at your favorite bookstore.
