BLACK CHURCH HISTORY is a big part of African-American history. Historical documents and first hand accounts of many if the barbaric acts of ill-treatment of blacks are recorded here, lest we forget this dreadful chapter in the history of America, and lest we fail to learn the relevant lessons from it. However, The Essential Writings of the Black American Church is not just a history of the African American  church. It highlights their perseverance and faith in the one true God who would rescue them, just as he had done for Moses in the Exodus.

The Essential Writings of the American Black Church reveals the tireless faith of African American believers in the one true God, whose justice reigns supreme, and to whom all men are ultimately accountable. This book will challenges us wherever we are: in our classrooms, places of study, with our  colleagues at work, among our families, and in our Christian  fellowships. For the whole volume shrieks out at us, at the top of its voice, "How we treat one another is of paramount importance. We are all equal in the sight of God. Following God's agenda will transform us.
