Segment #2: Interview with Dr. Neil Shenvi

Many pastors are recommending anti-racist books to their congregation. They are being put forward as authoritative guides to culture and what our response to the current racial crisis should be. Dr. Neil Shenvi shared his analysis of several popular books including White Fragility, How to Be an Anti-Racist, The Color of Compromise, and Be The Bridge.

Dr. Shenvi is an Apologist, Theoretical Chemist, and Homeschool Father. He has spent countless hours reading, researching, and writing on the topic of Critical Race Theory (CRT) and its influence on current culture. During the show, we discussed the four widely popular books mentioned above and Dr. Shenvi addressed these areas for each book:

  • What is the author’s credentials/expertise/come from?

  • What is the author’s worldview/faith?

  • What is the big idea of this book?

  • What is helpful about this book?

  • What are the concerns/criticisms of this book?
