Item Description...
In this revision of Soul Stories, Dr. Wimberly moves even more in the direction of Christian Education with African American families. Soul stories link persons' everyday life with the Christian Scriptures. The soul stories in this revised volume take on a cross-generational orientation with emphasis on linking stories of family identities, events, relationships, and story plot with Bible stories and exemplary Christian faith stories found in the African Diaspora. This orientation builds on an awareness of the continued fragmentation of Black family life and the disconnect between generations on one hand, yet, on the other hand, the profound yearning of Black people for a common family history. The goal of Dr. Wimberly's model is to enliven the values associated with the image of "village" in order to empower and equip African Americans today.

Soul Stories  Oct 18, 2003
Book Review: Soul Stories

Name of Book; Soul Stories: Author; Anne Streaty Wimberly: Number of Pages; 155. Anne stories' are about " The Soul's Search for Liberation and Vocation" in African Americans. She is an Associate Professor of Christian Education and Church music at Atlanta's Interdenominational Theological Center, an experienced teacher and researcher. Based on her years of teaching across all ages and cultures, especially in the African American Culture, she feels she has developed and reintroduced a "new-yet-old" teaching style. Anne further believes this type of teaching can be resourceful and successfully implemented when "working with black children, youth and adults in their struggles to experience themselves as whole."

Anne Argued that this model and style of teaching are best demonstrated by a process of linking Christian Faith Stories with every day life experiences. In this exercise, the participants are encouraged to reflect critically on historical events, along with current life experiences. As a result they are able to discern the liberating activity of God and accept his calling for their vocations. According to Anne, this model can be both encouraging and inspiring in the lives of those who are faced with life circumstances with which they can identify. Anne listed" five primary assumptions undergird the story- linking model in Christian Education". (1) The reclaiming of the story-linking process found in the early slave community. (2) Story-linking model is appropriately undertaken in an intergenerational Christian educational setting. (3) Similarity between the issues as well as the contexts that are addressed in Scriptures and the issues and the contexts African Americans address today. (4) The model can be appropriately used in traditional setting, such as church, bible study settings, homes, communities, and across ages. (5) The model holds importance for Christian education leaders, teachers and participants alike.

I thoroughly enjoyed the reading of this book. If I had to rate on a scale from 1-5, I would give it a 4.5. As a reader, I didn't find research, other than her case studies, to support her argument. However, I would recommend this book especially to Christian Educators. The model of linking Faith Stories to Everyday life experiences, in my opinion, could be utilized cross- cultures. At some point in our lives we can all reflect back to a time or a crisis in our life. By linking it to a Scripture could be a form of liberating us from our problem, or having a better understanding of what is going on in our life.

Soul Stories Review  Oct 17, 2003
Soul Stories by Anne Streaty Wimberly explains, by use of case studies and activities, a four step process of Proclaiming the story to our youth in Christian Education. This African American view of Christian Education, offers instruction to adults for a "How to..." when teaching other youth. Dr. Wimberly states the importance of understanding the liberation thought of the early African American Educators and it's importance to the art of vocation. The book is laid out for the reader to engage in study of the African American prespective of educating the Christian Faith. Using four primary pahses, the reader can examine the everyday story, the Christian Faith story in the Bible, the Christian Faith story in African American heritage and in Christian Ethical decision making. These processes will enhance a person's understanding of the biblical text in how it liberates one to follow the call to a God inspired vocation.
