Item Description...
Strangely enough, the story of black Baptists in America has not been told from the standpoint of its tremendous spiritual momentum through the ages of American history. Of inestimable importance is the fact that black Baptists were distinctive and eminent in the development of American Christianity. This book will attempt to document objectively our tradition as a unique trend within that experience. I shall attempt more than an apology of black Baptists, exalting the denomination and praising its leaders; rather, my purpose is to tell the black Baptist story as a part of, though unique, the general history of American Christianity, noting social, economic, and political influences on the development of the tradition.

Publishers Description
A comprehensive study of African-American Baptist history and the key role played in the development of Christianity in America.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good Overview  Aug 9, 2003
I learned a lot from reading this book because I knew nothing about how African-Americans clung so strongly to the Baptist Church (especially along the southern atlantic coast).

Within this book you will clearly understand how and why the National Baptist Convention splintered into so many different factions and how the Southern Baptist Church came to dissociate iself from it.

A good read...and not too academic to boot.
