Reviews - What do customers think about Building Up Zion's Walls: Ministry for Empowering the African American Family?

from United Methodist Connection  Mar 26, 2002
"Building Up Zion's Walls by James Perkins is a great book for pastors and parishoners in churches looking to develop ministries committed to uplifting the black family. It is targeted to the African American church and community. However, I believe it is an effective tool for those serving or worshiping in cross-racial appointments as well. The book attracted my interest for two main reasons. First, it isn't just reflective; it provides a plan for the betterment of individuals. Second, it incorporates the collective input of so many dynamic leaders in the church today. Each chapter highlights a program taking place within experienced congregations and communities that have reputations for growing and developing ministry. I would highly recommend this book to anyone committed to strenghtening and enhancing the wonderful blessing of African American community life."
-reviewed by Rev. Joseph Daniels, pastor of Emory United Methodist Church, Washington, D.C. in UM Connection, March 15, 2000
