Item Description...
Men and women, young and old, telling stories of God intervening in their lives-this is the Christian story alive in flesh and blood! For the black church steeped in oral tradition, "telling the story" is the hallmark of a distinctive evangelistic lifestyle. Describing tradition as "a womb for the creation of new ideas," Stallings challenges today's black Christians to recapture the power and vision of their rich evangelistic heritage. In a concise overview of religious movements in the 18th and 19th centuries, he highlights social, political, cultural, and religious influences through which the black churches of America emerged as separate and independent entities. He explores how religious experiences of African Americans, who saw themselves as a chosen people, created an evangelizing and caring supportive family that uses storytelling and story listening as a primary evangelistic method. He also examines the influences of urban life and television on the future ministries of black churches and their story. Stallings urges churches to reflect on how they now do ministry and how they can empower and equip persons to renew the living tradition-and tell their stories.
