Reviews

"A Sojourner's Truth is a strikingly vulnerable work. In these pages, Natasha Sistrunk Robinson gifts us with her compelling story in hopes of setting us on a liberating path toward personal change, dependency on God, and faithful action. This book is right on time because it is capable of guiding women and men to genuine self-examination, growth, and leadership. We need Natasha's voice right now!"

--Drew G. I. Hart, assistant professor of theology at Messiah College, author of Trouble I've Seen: Changing the Way the Church Views Racism

"A Sojourner's Truth is Natasha Sistrunk Robinson's love letter to a stream of Christian faith familiar with compassion yet less familiar with justice. Through personal stories, keen biblical reflection, and straight talk about public policy, Natasha invites readers to rethink Christian discipleship. Revealing more and more of the truth of Jesus with each chapter, she leads readers on a sojourn well worth the taking."

--Lisa Sharon Harper, founder and president of Freedom Road

"A Sojourner's Truth is an important book indeed. First, it is Natasha's story, but told on Natasha's terms. . . . For every ugly racial inequality still staining American soil and souls, she issues a battle cry to action. . . . In this brave volume, therefore, she invites us to kneel a while with her narrative and, as the saints of old used to say, to tarry there. Near her feet, humbled to look up and see God, we'll be inspired to do the right thing: to climb up from the mud and finally march."

--From the foreword by Patricia Raybon, author of Undivided

"In A Sojourner's Truth, Natasha Robinson weaves together three pivotal stories: her personal journey to freedom, the path of African Americans toward liberation, and the exodus experience of the Israelites. With a swift and truthful pen, Natasha calls the reader to examine their personal history while she excavates American history and the biblical narrative. As a leader, mentor, and prophetic voice of justice, Natasha has written a work that is a guidebook and a guidepost, pushing the reader toward courage, boldness, and hope."

--Amena Brown, spoken-word poet, author How to Fix a Broken Record

"In A Sojourner's Truth, Natasha leads us through the story of Moses and through the raw reality of her own journey. Then Natasha leads us further still: she invites us to engage with our own story and our purpose in the world. Her exposition is profound, her cultural analysis is incisive and truth telling, and her personal story is both searing and vulnerable. This book is a must-read but also a must learn from!"

--Jo Saxton, author of More Than Enchanting, cohost of the Lead Stories podcast
