“To Own a Slave or Not to Own a Slave” by Authors Everette and Michelle Bowers

A unique and original perspective on slavery


Review:

If you like thought-provoking literature, “To Own a Slave or Not to Own a Slave”
by Authors Everette and Michelle Bowers is for you.  This essay is an interesting read that provides a unique and original perspective on slavery.  In an easy to read fashion this guidebook is a quick read, but the content is rich and there are kernels of wisdom in each page.

The authors challenge readers to re-analyze the way they have been taught about the meaning of the biblical master and slave relationship, and propose that a misunderstanding of this biblical concept has caused a “wrong” relationship between the master and slave.  Further, the Bowers’ suggest that this wrong relationship has poured over into modern times through different forms of slavery such as human trafficking and child labor.  The authors present a call to action to faith based organizations to come together to fight the evil of modern day slavery through implementing three strategies they provide in the book. 

Whether you're a spiritual person or not, this book will have you asking a lot of questions about what you have been taught about slavery and its impact on neighborhoods today. If you are looking to understand slavery from a different perspective and strategies to help improve your neighborhood, I highly recommend you read this book.


Book Description:
