Product Description

Young black males often do not live to reach their 21st birthday. Juvenile violence emerges as black youth face little opportunity in a land of ever-rising expectations for white youth. Despite gains for some a deep loss of esteem continues to bury the hopes and dreams of African Americans who cry out for good news. Good news is best announced in preaching. So, two powerful preachers--one the dean of black preaching, the other a gifted young black preacher--combine to offer a boost to the self-esteem of African Americans. A positive theology of self-esteem is offered here.

Publisher's Description

"What's goin' down? I know you don't expect a seventy-five year old man to talk all that talk. . . "

A strong and much needed book addressing black youth today, Preaching for Black Self-Esteem is geared to a generation of black men and women who can--suggests the authors--proudly face issues such as caste systems, one's own physical characteristics, feelings of ambivalence and inferiority, and even 'buppies'--economically upwardly mobile Blacks.

A very powerful collection of sermons for a generation of Blacks coming of age after the Civil Rights era.
