The Great Shift Psycho-Spiritual Manual for Survival and Transformation in the Trump Era by Melinda Contreras-Byrd Book Resume:
This book is a US-based, prophetic-themed, race and culture-focused work which will serve to foster discussion on several important topics for Christians seeking to live out their faith in this present socio-political era. The foundational belief underlying this book is that we are living in an era of unique possibilities for the church to begin to make second-order changes in our views of Christianity, the church universal, and the real life applications of theological concepts of evil and spiritual warfare as they apply to the struggles of this time in history. For Black people in the United States, racism has long been the elephant in the room during most Black/White interactions on any level. Growing expressions of racism have now forced the elephant not only to the forefront of White discourse, but the elephant now sits comfortably at the altar railing of both Black and White church sanctuaries. This book argues that we are at a critical time for action, and gives suggestions for what at least some of those educational, theological and psychological actions could be.
