Reviews - What do customers think about Never Said a Mumbalin Word?

An insightful work!  Feb 25, 2003
"Never Said a Mumbalin' Word" by Mark Francisco Bozzuti-Jones is an intelligent, well-written, multi-faceted lenten meditation guide, which introduces readers to the message of faith in goodness that is woven into the old negro spirituals.

Anyone even remotely familiar with black history may have wondered just how a people so oppressed and down-trodden could possibly maintain their will to survive...let alone hope for eventual acceptance and justice or hang onto their humanity.

As I read and reread this collection of unfamiliar spirituals and absorbed sentiments penned long before emancipation and equal-rights were taken seriously...I was fascinated by the coping mechanism that fairly leaped from the pages. The negroes' identification with the 'Man From Galilee' and the ancient Israelites made their hope possible. Like them, Jesus and the Israelites were good people who suffered greatly, but were eventually rewarded for their goodness (and suffering) by God. It was their belief that they too would be rewarded that enabled them to survive and eventually overcome.

Aside from the historical context, this book details basic exercises for meditation and introspection which don't require a degree in theology to comprehend and appreciate. Its simple, straight-forward style is quite refreshing and renders it suitable for teaching most age-groups. It's an interesting read and relatively inexpensive. I highly recommend it.
