PUMC BOOK GROUP – Next Book Discussion – March 15th @ 1:30 PM
Shaking the Gates of Hell- A Search for Family and Truth in the Wake of the Civil Rights Revolution by John Archibald
The next book up for discussion is John Archibald’s memoir of growing up during the turbulence of the civil rights revolution of the late 50’s and 60’s in Alabama. John, the son and grandson of Methodist pastors remembers his growing up years through the lens of a child protected from the harsh times of racism, protest, and death that ensued when American
blacks and civil rights advocates took their protests into the southern bastions of oppression.
At the same time, Archibald, the now adult, addresses his father’s role during that stressful time through close examination of his sermons and actions as a pastor of the various congregations that he served and through memories of a father who was a fun and loving influence. This is a poignant read that addresses questions of honesty, honor, moral integrity, and seeming silence in the face of great injustice. An important read – grist for great discussion.
Books can be downloaded, borrowed through interlibrary loan, purchased on-line or through our local booksellers. All are welcome to read and discuss this book, deemed ‘one of the best books of the year’ by NPR. Hit the link below for a more in depth look at this book.
