Black or White takes place in rural Mississippi in the 1940s and 1950s. There's not a whole lot more that I can say about the book without spoiling things.

Black or White takes place in rural Mississippi in the 1940s and 1950s. Although the story encompasses many characters, the two best friends that are focused on are Missy Parker, a 7-year-old white girl, and Junior Washington, an 11-year-old black boy. The Parkers and Washingtons live near each other, and Junior's father is employed by Missy's father at his cotton gin. The racial differences play very interestingly. Suffice it to say that Black or White is a great read, and I'm looking forward to the other books in this series. One person found this helpful.

An innocent black woman is attacked by a mob of white men. Old Mose Washington confronts the men with a twelve-gauge shotgun, and people die. When the dawn comes, Mose is a fugitive, diligently pursued by an FBI agent who is unprepared to accept the nature of the forces at work. When the dawn comes, Mose is a fugitive, diligently pursued by an FBI agent who is unprepared to accept the nature of the forces at work here.

Great Christian fiction! First of the Black and White Series. A story of good and evil and it's fight within our lives. Must read.

After a few chapters, I was starting to compare John Aubrey Anderson to early Frank Peretti, as there is definitely some focus on the kinds of spiritual warfare that one sees in This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness. And I would certainly mean the comparison as a compliment -- especially for a first-time novelist. But in retrospect, that really wouldn't be a fair comparison, as Anderson finds his own voice very quickly.

Black or White takes place in rural Mississippi in the 1940s and 1950s. Although the story encompasses many characters, the two best friends that are focused on are Missy Parker, a 7-year-old white girl, and Junior Washington, an 11-year-old black boy. The Parkers and Washingtons live near each other, and Junior's father is employed by Missy's father at his cotton gin.

The racial differences play very interestingly. Given the time and place of the story, segregation runs pretty rampant in general society, but the Parkers don't buy into it. If anything, the Washingtons have to remind them occasionally of their "place" in such a society. Sometimes the Parkers don't care; other times, they understand that they'd be doing more harm than good to their black friends.

Fairly early in the story, we begin seeing the spiritual warfare going on around the lives of these people. As I said, it's a bit reminiscent of early Peretti, but not derivative. And as the book unfolds, we see that it's not as pervasive either. Certainly the spiritual issues are in the forefront, but it's only occasionally that we see past the visible.

I'll tell ya -- Anderson really knows how to keep his readers going. He is able to deliver a tense scene with an unknown outcome stretched out over several chapters without frustrating the reader. And on the flip side, when the action slows, the story is just as interesting as it works as a character study. All in all, this is fabulous depth for a first-timer.

Throughout the story, knowing God and making Him known is the over-riding theme. As the book starts, the Washingtons are actual Christians, whereas the Parkers are good people who go to church because mama went to church. Events unfold such that the Washingtons are able to show the Parkers the difference eventually.

There's not a whole lot more that I can say about the book without spoiling things. Suffice it to say that Black or White is a great read, and I'm looking forward to the other books in this series.

When I got this from my wonderful wife for Christmas, I pumped my fist. Just something about the title attracted me immediately, and I knew that this would be something I'd be recommending to friends. So I finally cracked open the first page. While the first couple of chapters got me interested, after chapter 2, when it took at least 3 chapters to put a scene into perspective, I started getting a little irritated. I was really hoping that the whole book wouldn't be drawn out like that the whole way through! I'm thankful that my tension was short-lived after that. The storytelling was darn good! So after a little bit of irritation with that one long draw, I'm wondering if I just read the next classic in spiritual warfare.

It starts out with best friends, and a game of baseball. With one of those friends, Junior Washington, it ends with a promise to his daddy. With Missy Parker, she hopes to keep the vision alive of knowing God and making Him know, just like Junior would've wanted. The lovely Pip takes the lovely Missy under her wing, teaches her the things of God. Missy is an ornery girl with a faith that won't break, and a fierce determination to go with it. She learns the things of God, and unknowingly, steps into a battlefield. There's a war going on, and in Cat Lake, its all out spiritual warfare!

Through all this, I came to enjoy all that was of Cat Lake and the people that lived and visited there. Reading might not be enough. I want to meet men like Mose, and simply observe the simple faith that they carry. I want to carry out that mission, knowing God and making Him known. I want to be friends with the Pat Patterson's of this world, and tell them about my Jesus!

Someday I'll have to take another trip to Cat Lake. When it is, I guess that's undecided for now. I suppose if I do, I'll look past the minor irritation it may give me, and I'll take my coat off. For now, I'll be telling my friends about the new great work by John Aubrey Anderson!

(SPOILER)

The subtitle of this book could be: "Or, How Many Men Have to Die to Get Missy Parker Married Off?"

I really wanted to enjoy this book, which is written by a gifted storyteller and writer.

I felt cheated. The novelist sets the reader up to expect the protagonist to develop into a truly noteworthy evangelist or missionary. Three men give their lives so that Missy Parker can carry out her Christian gifts. And these three men(Mose Jr., David Patterson, and the conveniently demon-possesed Hull Dillworth) meet their ends for what? So Missy can emerge as an influential evangelist or humanitarian? No. So she can marry a man who forfeits his belief in philosophy for Christianity in the most anti-climatic conversion scene ever committed to paper. Oh, and quote Bible verses ad nauseum.

And who are these sneering, unpleasant people who live at Cat Lake, and how fast can we wall them up inside their sanctimonious little community? Sadly, Missy Parker is never likeable. She's grating, arrogant and never depicted as a loving or gracious Christian. She says she fears for the souls of the unconverted in her life, but she only offers them her bombastic conceit. The only demonstrations of humility and kindness are those by Mose, Mose Jr. and Pip, but they only exist to keep the grating central character alive so that she can recite platitudes and bask in her careless, mean-spirited tractor beam of sexual attractiveness.

Anderson can do better than this, and let's hope he does his next work of Christian fiction.
