What to expect

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

Critics Review

  • “Owen Strachan has done a great service to the Church not only by taking aim at one of her most dangerous foes (wokeness), but also by pointing her again and again to her all-sufficient Savior and head.”

    Voddie Baucham, Jr., dean of the School of Divinity at African Christian University and author of Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism's Looming Catastrophe
  • “This is an alarming and remarkably insightful book.”

    Wayne Grudem, Distinguished Research Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies at Phoenix Seminary
  • “Owen Strachan dissects and dismantles the present-day ‘woke’ movement with theological precision and a polemical rebuttal…If truth is to be cherished, error must be exposed—and denounced. Strachan does both in this book.”

    Steven J. Lawson, president of OnePassion Ministries in Dallas, Texas
  • “Dr. Owen Strachan reminds believers in Christ of precisely why both the ‘meat’ and ‘bones’ of wokeness must be rejected. The evangelical Church will benefit greatly from the scriptural and scholastic heavy lifting Dr. Strachan has undertaken in this extremely helpful and timely work.”

    Darrell Harrison, dean of social media at Grace to You and cohost of the Just Thinking podcast
  • “Woke teaching, Critical Race Theory, and intersectionality should not be in the toolchest of a Christian. This book is an excellent introduction to these destructive heresies and a powerful presentation of the only truth that brings lasting reconciliation: the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

    Ken Ham, founder and CEO of Answers in Genesis
