Product Description

In this small gem of moral reflection, renowned ethicist Peter Paris reveals key elements of a distinctive African worldview. Centered in concepts of God, community, family, and person, they ground the virtues and values most prized by African Americans and African peoples everywhere. Adapted from Paris's acclaimed volume The Spirituality of African Peoples, this book sketches a rich alternative and corrective to individualist western ethics and provides a potent resource for religious ethics today.
