Product Description

"Plenty Good Room" is a six-week, small-group Bible study based on six African spirituals. Born in the context of slavery, these spirituals live on today, speaking powerfully to new generations. This student piece will help you engage the Scriptures on which the spirituals' lyrics are based, the tunes used to sing them, and relevant contemporary issues related to the themes. With this book and accompanying CD found in the leaders guide you will be able to listen to songs, reflect on harmonies, and much more.
