Excerpt


In this accessible and provocative study, Blount draws correspondences between Revelation's context and the suffering of the African American church. Applying the African American social, political, and religious experience as an interpretive cipher for the book's complicated imagery, he contends that Revelation is essentially a story of suffering and struggle amidst oppressive assimilation.

Excerpt


Preaching mediates the word of God into a cultural matrix. And no American preaching has done so more effectively and powerfully than African American preaching, claims noted homiletician James Harris. Known for its rhetorical strength, social-justice orientation, and dead-on connection to the community's lived experience, black preaching is here analyzed and proposed as a model for all preaching.

Harris grounds black preaching in the self-understanding of the historic black church and its most prominent preachers, from Martin Luther King Jr. to Samuel Proctor. Harris also explores the hermeneutical and aesthetic dimensions of preaching, especially at the intersection of sacred text and the broader culture. He then lays out the specific distinguishing characteristics of black preaching, including verbal cadence and rhythm, use of gestures, and, most thoroughly, the narrative model of the sermon. His last chapter, "Preaching Plainly," provides specific instructions on how to put the sermon together employing this model. Paperback, 160 pages. Fortress Press.

Excerpt


This fourth volume of Outstanding Black Sermons brings together some of the best preachers in the pulpit today. These are millennium preachers--men and women who can speak powerfully to this generation. Walter Thomas has collected sermons from sixteen preachers--ranging from those who have been on the national circuit for years and are familiar names to us all, to those rising stars who are in the morning of a glorious ministry. The messages shared by this diverse group of preachers seek to focus not on the eloquence and faith of the preachers themselves but on the gospel and teachings of Christ. These sixteen sermons will highlight the great tradition of black preaching found today within the African American pulpit. The central theme of the sermons preached here is the revelation of God to humankind, and the thread that winds its way through these pages is the deep faith held by these men and women of the pulpit.

Excerpt


This is the first and only book to explore ministering and preaching to one of the fastest growing segments of our society, the black middle class. In the theological tradition of the black church that celebrates "preached theology," author Marvin McMickle preaches to both pastors and black middle-class churches and to members of the black middle class. He demonstrates how ministers can develop sermons and programs that speak to the "two separate congregations" that coexist in their pews--middle class commuters and the underclass residents of the immediate neighborhood.
