"The black community is in trouble," writes Anthony Bradley. Systemic issues are perpetuating a chronic plague on not only African-American society, but the black church in particular.

Continuing the renowned "Cosby Conversation," first started in 2007 by Bill Cosby and Dr. Alvin Poussaint, Bradley has assembled a team of pastors, scholars, and leaders to address specific issues within the black community. Bradley's volume features contributions from himself, Vincent Bacote, Ralph C. Watkins, Eric M. Mason, Anthony Carter, Craig Mitchell, and others.

Covering a variety of topics, including victim mentality, hip-hop, masculinity, and the prosperity gospel, this book will open readers' eyes to the serious challenges facing the black church today. It will not leave readers without hope, however, as each contributor brings the conversation back to the Bible and the gospel as the only source of true, enduring change.
