    Hi Mark,

    I’ve been following your book reviews on CT and would like to introduce you to Strong Girls Print, a new imprint of Riverbrook, devoted to empowering young people. To what address can we send an ARC for consideration by CT. The title I have in mind, Cease & Desist, is YAthriller with a powerful Christian theme. Link is above.

    I was born and raised in the Presbyterian Church. At the age 22 I joined the LDS
    Church, I’m now 79. Every month I read CT, Presbyterian Outlook and Christian
    Century and enjoy all three mags. In all three, the editorial slant , as well as the mainline churches are basically liberal, Demo,and Socialistic. That’s the way it has been since the 60’s and probably will not change. Because of this trend, Blacks and Browns will continue to join mainline churches, while the white population will continue to start predominately white non-mainline churches.
    On the left, right now, it’s mantra is hip-hip hooray for the blacks and the gay community, while at the same time the left also wages a hate all things white campaign, esp. white males, white history, white constitution, white forefathers, etc,hoping this will bring more voters into their Demo Party.
    Bye, Bye white, conservative, mainline churches.
    The Deplorables Party elected Mr Trump hoping he would save the Constitution
    and our country as envisioned by our Founding Fathers. The socialists of our country, using the Demo Party as a front, desire to replace the present Constitution with their own arbitrary rules and cultural agenda.
    If the left succeeds, bye-bye America, Bye-bye the Bill of Rights.
    Sincerely yours, Bill Morgan

    I was somewhat distressed to read your analysis of Aaron Renn’s “The History of Church and Men.” You said: “What this means is that either (a) men really are more evil than women, so of course they rebel against the Christian faith more stubbornly, or (b) the church has emphasized aspects of the faith that make it more amenable to women, and thus have made it seem like religion is women’s concern. I suspect the latter because I happen to believe that women are just as wicked as men—no offense intended.” There are far more than two options here. You need to understand the relationship between power and gender (or power and status/race) among other things. How about this: men are attracted to power and control, and much of theology tends to enable that attraction. The church is losing power and control in society (not the fault of women) and therefore seems irrelevant to the goals and aspiration of some men–in fact, cruciformity is opposed to it. Women, on the other hand, are more accustomed to find meaning and purpose in roles without domination–it’s not a question of original sin.

      Cynthia, sorry about the delayed response. You make a good point about women finding meaning in service without domination. I can’t disagree with that! At least that’s my experience of women in my life. I don’t know that all men simply want “power and control” but we often find ourselves in places of authority, which in fact do have a certain amount of power that comes with them. Some let the power go to their heads, but others try to use their authority with care and wisdom.

    Hello,

    I wanted to comment on something that you wrote in Church History magazine on the issue covering Pentecostalism. In your article you accused William Seymour of being racist toward whites later in life as well as his expelling a Hispanic couple(s) from Azusa. I felt that your characterization of him was completely unfair. Seymour limited leadership of Azusa to only black members after dealing with the attempted take over from Parham and Durham. Also, at that point the interracialism of Azusa had, sadly, just about ended. Seymour was worn out with trying to make interracial leadership after years of attacks and take over attempts. In regard to the Hispanics that were expelled, no one is completely sure of what happened as Cecil M. Robeck points out in his book The Azusa Street Mission and Revival. What bothered me the most about what you had to say was that it came off like you were minimizing the racism that Seymour faced by making it seem like he was a racist himself.

    Hey,

    First, I need to apologize because I see this is the comment section and not a direct email to you.

    Second, I left a comment yesterday here that came off rude and angry in regard to something you said about William Seymour of Azusa Street. I wrote that on the worst possible day to do it. I apologize for that. I would like to discuss the matter in all charity and civility. Forgive me for coming off angry and hostile. And forgive me for posting it as a comment and not an email…

    • markgalli says:

      Wayne, thanks for the apology, but I’m not sure it was necessary. You make a valid point: if Seymour was racist against whites, I should have noted that this very well could have been a reaction against white racism against blacks, and him in particular. –Mark
