Publisher's Description

"A faith in the God of the Bible and an association with the institutional church have had a positive influence on the African American community, and were key in the survival of the slave experience in America," says psychologist and professor Dr. Lee June.

This book traces the history of Christianity among African Americans and the development of the "Black Church"--those denominations created by, created for, and stewarded by African Americans. He examines the role the church has played politically and psychologically as well as spiritually in the lives of African Americans. This comprehensive psychological and spiritual look at an historic institution will be a valuable tool for both pastors and seminary professors.

    This is a fascinating book on the history of the Black church in America. It is well researched and very readable. This is an important part of our heritage as Americans many are ignorant of this rich history. It was an excellent read and I highly recommend it.Patti Chadwickwww.bookbargainsandpreviews.com
