Why are Black communities full of churches but still suffer harsh conditions?
Why are Black people the most God fearing people in the world, yet the most fragmented and economically dependent?
Is there a correlation between religion and low productivity?
Holy Lockdown is a book that addresses the paradox that exists within the Black community. One that reflects the abundance of Black churches coupled with the abundance of Black poverty.
There are approximately 85,000 predominately Black churches in this country, meaning, we could have 1,700 Black churches in every state!
Holy Lockdown takes a critical and long overdue look at the psychological impact the church and sermonic rhetoric has made on the Black community, and it explores the possibility of the church as being the cause of many problems faced by Black believers.
