What would you do if you realized that what you believe and what you practice don’t line up?

This was the question facing Ron Miller, author of the new book SELLOUT: Musings from Uncle Tom’s Porch, once he left home and began to ponder the values with which he was raised and the political allegiances he inherited from his parents. Miller says, “Once I left my parents’ home, I concluded I couldn’t practice my faith and support liberal policies.

“That epiphany was the beginning of a journey that brought me personal peace but pitted me against the overwhelming majority of my own race,” says Miller. “When my mother asks me why I align myself with conservatives, my reply is, ‘Because you raised me that way.’”

“In SELLOUT: Musings from Uncle Tom’s Porch, I take on the volatile mix of politics, race and faith, and I do so with complete openness and vulnerability, using my personal story as the jumping off point for a wide-ranging discussion on the role of the black church, the active practice of faith in the public square, the disintegration of the black family brought about by the rejection of God’s Word and the replacement of God with government,” explains Miller.

Regarding the disproportionate impact of abortion on the black community and the black church’s blind eye to the slaughter, Miller declares, “There will be an accounting one day, not just for the millions of babies murdered, but also for all the people led astray from obedience to God for political purposes.”

From beginning to end, the author’s faith is the catalyst for his personal transformation, struggles and eventual peace, and his public political activism. SELLOUT: Musings from Uncle Tom’s Porch is a provocative and revealing portrait of a black conservative who ultimately sold out to Christ alone.
