Pastor R.D. Bernard's New Book 'We Are King Solomon' Accounts the Historical Narrative of King Solomon Baptist Church and the Stories Within
Recent release "We Are King Solomon" from Covenant Books author Pastor R.D. Bernard is a brilliant read of the history of the King Solomon Baptist Church, the people and places involved, and the key events that led to the rise of this historic church.
NEW YORK, May 21, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Pastor R.D. Bernard, a co-host of The Preacher’s Corner, the Senior Pastor of the historic King Solomon Baptist Church; has completed his new book, “We Are King Solomon”: a chronological account of the history of a church and its triumphs and failures over many decades.
Pastor Bernard writes, “We Are King Solomon is a historical narrative of the historic King Solomon Baptist Church of Vicksburg, Mississippi. Nestled in the hills of historic Vicksburg, Mississippi, the King Solomon Baptist Church is the oldest Black Baptist Church in a city of historical churches.
"We Are King Solomon expounds on the people, places, and events instrumental in shaping the shared life of the Church from its inception in 1860, placing emphasis on the period from November 2003 through September 2017, a portion of the pastorate of Reverend R. D. Bernard.
"We Are King Solomon is much more than the mere recounting of events in the life of the Church, it is the providential interpretation of those events. The history of the King Solomon Baptist Church, like most long-lived churches in the South, particularly Mississippi, is tied to the great themes of its time—including the volatile mix of race and politics.
"We Are King Solomon is recounted from the perspective of the African American Church, a cultural icon in its own right. Its rich, oral tradition provides much of the narrative in the telling of its own story. Though first-person accounts of events end with each death, the memories of those events live on through their retelling.
"We Are King Solomon is the inspirational story of a Church that found favor with God and spiritual strength through that favor, while overcoming obstacle after untold obstacle in their long, storied history.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Pastor R. D. Bernard’s new book is an interesting creation that gives the readers a better perspective of how things were for the Church in the past centuries.
