Publisher's Summary

In a world that is “woke”, how many Christians are actually awake? This short theologically sound primer is a resource for pastors, ministry leaders, community leaders, and other thinking Christians that explains carefully and clearly what critical race theory and wokeness truly are, what the Bible teaches about race and ethnicity, why wokeness is distinct from Christianity and should be rejected, and how the church can work for unity based in the gospel of grace.

Owen Strachan is a respected Reformed theologian and thought leader who can help Christians:

  • Better understand critical race theory, something very few do;
  • Understand the high stakes - for the church and society at large - of wokeness as a movement;
  • Think through America’s complex past with nuance and sensitivity;
  • Study how God has made humanity one through the imago Dei;
  • Grasp the beauty of the biblical doctrine of ethnicity and “race”; and
  • Be ready to work for unity in perilous times

Pulls no punches

This is a fairly detailed description of "Wokeness" (critical theory in general and critical race theory specifically) and a reasoned explanation of why it is incompatible with Christianity.

One criticism: The reader consistently and seriously butchers the pronunciation of almost all the names (including sometimes the author's name). He butchers pronunciation of the good guys' name (e.g. Voddie Baucham) as well as the bad guys' names (e.g. Ta-nehisi Coates).

In general, this is a good work in the growing library of solid work exposing the insidious racist lie that is critical race theory and how it has insinuated itself into the Church as a counterfeit gospel. Furthermore, the book offers scripturally sound recommendations to counter the false gospel of "wokeness".

Must Read for Every Believer

Very in-depth biblically sound work on this subject. Just wish the narrator knew how to pronounce peopleMs names correctly and pronounce “Ephesians” correctly. Ha ha
Overall, a must read for every believer.

Mispronounced words

“Coates” in Ta-Nehisi Coates and “imago Dei” are mispronounced. I recommend editing it for sake of the gospel

Loved the book but the reader mispronounces words and names.

This a review of the reading of this book. Voddie Bauchum is mangled by the reader. It Voddie like Roadie not Voddie like body. Bauchum is bah-come not bow-chum. He also mispronounces many Latin phrases.

CRT can be confusing. What does the Bible say about the ideas of being Woke? The Word is not silent. Neither is this book.

In a day and age (2021) where Critical Race Theory/Intersectionality, and words like White Privilege can be quite divisive and painful to some and exciting and liberating to others.
These extreme opposing sides appear to come out of widespread pride, massive confusion, and for many informed concern.
That applies to both sides of the “for and against” of these teachings that are prevalent in many news sources, from a seemingly increasing number from members of government, and even schools.

These political ideas and the highly specific World view’s marching orders of Wokeness are not something to merely observe outside conservative Christian Churches. But have slithered in on it’s belly inside some Local Churches, seminaries, and denominations to ask “Did God really say?” This has been done by members and leaders in part by some aggressively intentional and by others who,have been deceived, and are agreeing ignorantly. Many are sadly lining up to promote and pass off these ideas and Woke as actually Biblical(!!) by attempting to adjoin these two antithetical world views of oil and water and insisting by God, that all people either get on board with or leave. No middle ground it seems. But is described clearly in this book on all these topics.

Strachen is one man fighting alongside a multitude of other Christians who understand deeply the gravity of sin in all of us and thankfully, this author does not mince words while demolishing the Woke.
This book does make clear, by explaining Biblically, the truth that the two drastically different religions (Woke and Christianity) are not in anyway compatibility according to God’s Word. I know that’s a big statement.

Not only is that statement true but the Author compassionately proclaims how the Bible reveals Hope of being reconciled first and foremost to God for the Glory of God among all people groups and cultures. The Gospel is the blessed cure!
