Product Description

E. Hammond Oglesby demonstrates that ordinary people of faith become ethical not by chance but by choice. He also helps readers understand the importance of Christian ethics in light of the deep spiritual and cultural roots of the black church in America. Through stories, theological reflection, and case studies meant to encourage small-group discussion, Oglesby builds a case that Christian ethics begins-in the rhythmic flux of the black religious experience-with a love of freedom, because no child of God can be fully Christian without being free (Galatians 5:1).

Q: Please give me an idea of the contents of the book. I'm not sure if this is what I'm looking for.

A: The publisher has the following description:

E. Hammond Oglesby offers a new method of moral discourse that can speak to ongoing critical issues in the black community, such as the AIDS pandemic, an absence of young-adult participation in many black churches, and a continuing battle against racism.

In 'Pressing Toward the Mark,' he demonstrates that ordinary people of faith become ethical not by chance but by choice. He also helps readers understand the importance of Christian ethics in light of the deep spiritual and cultural roots of the black church in America. Through stories, theological reflection, and case studies meant to encourage small-group discussion, Oglesby builds a case that Christian ethics begins—in the rhythmic flux of the black religious experience—with a love of freedom, because no child of God can be fully Christian without being free (Galatians 5:1).
