Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism’s Looming Catastrophe

The Ground Is Moving

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.

“This book by Voddie Baucham is a gift to the bride of Jesus. The hallways of history point to moments when the Church was called to stand firm. The call of the Christian is to ‘contend for the faith once delivered to the saints’ (Jude 3). The difficulty with social justice is that it appears to be virtuous and it sounds ‘Christian’ when it’s being employed by Christian leaders. However, social justice is one of the most devious and destructive movements the Church has faced in the last hundred years. Voddie Baucham, like a capable doctor, diagnoses the problem and in a skillful manner directs his readers to the biblical solution.”

“Voddie Baucham has a gift for very clear writing about the complex history and terms and bottom-line relevance of Critical Race Theory. The weaving of the stories and the reporting with the solid and clear teaching is perfect. I always learn something when I read Voddie on this topic, even though I am a smart fellow and have been studying this stuff a while. His long interest in it and concern about it shows. Fault Lines is great. I shall be requiring it of my students.”
