Practical Theology for Black Churches: Bridging Black Theology and African American Folk Religion
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe rift between black theology, with its social and political concerns, and black churches, with their emphasis on pastoral care and piety, has been growing. Andrews' insightful analysis of the gulf between them reveals the invasive influence of individualism in black religious life as well as the shared values for social change and care of the soul. Notably, it is this influence that has disrupted communal solidarity and brought about the neglect of liberation ethics within black church life.
PortraitDale P. Andrews is Martin Luther King, Jr. Professor of Homiletics and Pastoral Theology at the Boston University School of Theology in Boston, Massachusetts.
