Additional Info
This brilliant snapshot of the Black Church today puts a spotlight on its vibrant worship, its approach to doctrine, and its role in social activism. Pinn describes themes in the history of the Black Church as well as the major beliefs and forms of worship that define this tradition. He then focuses on the practices of the Black Church, especially as it has engaged in issues of economic development and justice, and struggles with such issues as the full inclusion of women, sexuality, and health. Throughout, Pinn highlights the important and creative tension between “spiritual” and “mundane” concerns to which the Black Church must respond and by which it is shaped.
