J. Bernard Taylor and Beulah Lee Taylor Share Experiences with God in “Look at God! Ain’t He Awesome?”

The Bible says in Psalm 40:3-5, “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.” In this book, Rev. Dr. J. Bernard Taylor and his wife Beulah Lee Taylor praise and declare the mighty works of God as they share the enthralling and awesome experiences of God that she has witnessed and been involved in, including answered prayer and miraculous healings. Whenever Beulah Lee Taylor witnesses or experiences an act of God, she says, “Look at God! Ain’t He awesome?”, hence the title of this book.

From Jacob’s ladder at Bethel to Moses and the burning bush, from the resurrection of Jesus Christ to the conversion of Paul, the Bible is filled with awesome experiences with God. Outside of the Bible, we find the testimonies of Christians such as John Newton and William Cowper, who attest to the working of God in their lives. Throughout the accounts contained in this book, you will find Beulah Lee Taylor’s encounters with the awesome experiences that God has worked in her life and the lives of others. It is the hope of the authors that those who read this will be inspired to let God move in their lives according to His awesome will.

Sociologist George Yancey Outlines an Alternative to Colorblindness and Antiracism: Don’t Ignore Race or Alienate White People – Daniel Whyte III Concurs

For a long time, Americans committed to fighting racism have rallied around the ideals of colorblindness. Both legally and culturally, they have sought to build a society where, in Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous words, people are judged not “by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

Over time, however, the persistence of racism has raised doubts about the colorblind approach. In response, groups like Black Lives Matter have seized on the rival paradigm of antiracism. Instead of aspiring to colorblindness, its proponents say, we should acknowledge that America is plagued by deep-seated racism—and then take aggressive steps to stamp it out.

In Beyond Racial Division: A Unifying Alternative to Colorblindness and Antiracism, Baylor University sociologist George Yancey seeks a new way forward, one grounded in a vision of healthy interracial communication and community. As Yancey argues, both colorblindness and antiracism result in “racial alienation,” which prevents us from working out our racial issues together in a way that honors the dignity, value, and worth of every individual.

In different ways, Yancey sees colorblindness and antiracism erecting barriers to this goal. As he puts it, colorblindness ignores the realities of racial injustice, past and present. As for antiracism, he faults it for exacerbating racial division, in part by issuing an implied permission slip to disrespect white people and creating a clear expectation that whites “defer to nonwhites.”

What can succeed where colorblindness and antiracism have failed? Here, Yancey emphasizes an ethic of mutual accountability and a reliance upon moral persuasion. This means, for starters, that when it comes to conversations on race, “everyone is allowed to participate, and everyone’s ideas are taken seriously.”
