This book is of tremendous assistance to those of us striving to best organize the church for service while understanding our cultural context and the specific spiritual needs of our people.
Just what was needed! Jul 16, 2002
This book was well constructed in 9 powerful and compact chapters. After reading and studying what these authors has to say about the African-American church, pastors and leaders should be pretty much focused and ready to administrate the body in which they have been placed in charge of. Theses authors have left no stones unturned.
