Publisher's Description

This second volume of Readings in African American Church Music and Worship makes available the most recent scholarship on 21st-century developments and trends, through a representative number of articles, essays, and chapters written by brilliant musicians, authors, and theologians of our time. The list of contributors includes some of the finest emerging scholars, as well as offerings from seasoned authors whose research and writings are well regarded by peers and the worshiping community at large. The significant contributions—from names new and familiar—greatly broaden the field of study. The 43 chapters of this volume are divided into 7 categories: Worship and Liturgical Practices, Liturgical Theologies, Proclamation of the Word, Hymnody: Sound and Sense, Perspectives on Praise and Worship, Hip Hop and/in the Church, and Perspectives on Women and Gender. Insightful, thought-provoking, challenging, and hopeful—this volume will be a source of knowledge, a stimulus for discussion, and a call to reconsider the many and varied viewpoints of the African American church.
