Is the Black Church dying?
The picture is mixed and there are many challenges. The church needs spiritual revival. But reviving and strengthening the Black Church will require great wisdom and courage.
Reviving the Black Church calls us back to another time, borrowing the wisdom of earlier faithful Christians. But more importantly, it calls us back to the Bible itself. For there we find the divine wisdom needed to see all quarters of the Black Church live again, thriving in the Spirit of God.
It's pastor and church planter Thabiti Anyabwile's humble prayer that this book might be useful to pastors and faithful lay members in reviving at least some quarters of the Black Church, and churches of every ethnicity and context - all for the glory of God.
Thabiti Anyabwile is a church planter in Washington DC (has been Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman in the Grand Cayman Islands) and a Council member with The Gospel Coalition.
