Product Description

The author, one of the founding fathers of the black theology movement, provides this valuable survey of the black church. Using a cross cultural, interdiscplinary, ecumenical approach, he shows how knowledge gained through black theology can be applied to specific areas of ministry such as education, pastoral care, and political and economic issues. He challenges ministers and churches to nurture the "prophethood" of all believers in a holistic ministry in and to the black community, a ministry that has both personal and social dimensions and needs to involve the underclass as well as the middle class.
