The Washington Post reports that African American women are among the most religious in the country. We have suspected this by observation; now we have some statistical data.
Again, it is time for the church to go hard after African American men with the Gospel, to see men’s absences as an issue with great theological and social significance (cf. Ps. 78:5-8; Eph. 5:25; 6:1-4; 1 Thess. 2:11-12), and to recognize that African American men are one of the most unreached mission fields in North America. Wise and loving believers, upon reading this article, might ask, “Where are all the brothers,” and “What am I doing to help get the Gospel to the African American men I see every day?”
