The Ground Is Moving

The death of George Floyd at the hands of police in the summer of 2020 shocked the nation. As riots rocked American cities, Christians affirmed from the pulpit and in social media that “black lives matter” and that racial justice “is a gospel issue.”

But what if there is more to the social justice movement than those Christians understand? Even worse: What if they’ve been duped into preaching ideas that actually oppose the Kingdom of God?

In this powerful book, Voddie Baucham, a preacher, professor, and cultural apologist, explains the sinister worldview behind the social justice movement and Critical Race Theory—revealing how it already has infiltrated some seminaries, leading to internal denominational conflict, canceled careers, and lost livelihoods. Like a fault line, it threatens American culture in general—and the evangelical church in particular.

Whether you’re a layperson who has woken up in a strange new world and wonders how to engage sensitively and effectively in the conversation on race or a pastor who is grappling with a polarized congregation, this book offers the clarity and understanding to either hold your ground or reclaim it.

  • Jeremy Mueller

    I think this might be my first one-star rating on Goodreads. I don’t even give this one star because I necessarily disagree with brother Voddie's critiques of critical theory and “critical social ...

    Trouble has been brewing for some while now. Social justice warriors have taken to the streets, courtroom, and universities. Most recently, social justice has penetrated the church walls. While many a...

    A book every Christian must read to properly understand Critical Social Justice (CSJ) and learn how to defend the true gospel against such a false teaching. Voddie uses Scripture, logic, and just plai...

  • Moses Flores

    This book could have been written way better. Thought through more. Better citations than brittanica and blogs. I’m still unclear whether Baucham condemns White Supremacy of any sort as he gave it a...

  • Jonathan

    The heart of Voddie Baucham’s book “Fault Lines” can be summarized with this sentence: “there is not a book in the world that is better suited to address men on the issue of race than the Bibl...

  • Sarah Cottrell

    It is genuinely shocking to me that this book made it to publication. It is poorly sourced, poorly reasoned, doesn’t define its terms, and doesn’t support any of the claims that it makes. The only...

  • Joost Nixon

    Baucham has done painstaking research in an area that is dividing our nation, and even more troubling, the church. Several of my friends--at one time robust, biblical Christians--have embraced CSJ and...
