Do You Know the Heroes of Black Church History?
Recently, I posted a blog on 215 Resources for Community Ministry and Racial Reconciliation.
Today, I’m following up on that resource with 220 Resources on Black Church History in America.
As many of you know, I love church history. I’ve recently written on the history of the Reformation in my book, Counseling Under the Cross: How Martin Luther Applied the Gospel to Daily Life.
I’ve also written on Black Church History: Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care.
Why write on both topics?
While many of us could name European heroes of the Reformation, how many of us could name any of the heroes of the Black Church? We all have much to learn from each other—from the great cloud of spiritual witnesses—Christians from every tribe, tongue, nation, and race.
This bibliography of 220 resources will help us to learn about and from the Black Church in America.
