Item description for Yet with a Steady Beat: The Black Church Through a Psychological and Biblical Lens by Lee N. June...
Overview A faith in the God of the Bible and an association with the institutional church have had a positive influence on the African American community, and were key in the survival of the slave experience in America," says psychologist and professor Dr. Lee June. This book traces the history of Christianity among African Americans and the development of the "Black Church"-those denominations created by, created for, and stewarded by African Americans. He examines the role the church has played politically and psychologically as well as spiritually in the lives of African Americans. This comprehensive psychological and spiritual look at an historic institution will be a valuable tool for both pastors and seminary professors.

Reviews - What do customers think about Yet with a Steady Beat: The Black Church Through a Psychological and Biblical Lens?
Politely Critical of the Church May 11, 2008
The author was very academic and polite in pointing out "possible" problems with/in the "Black Church". He however did not relate how the problems might affect people in everyday life, i.e. lack of motivation, low self esteem, in general, why Black people are in the sad shape that we are in now. Good start, go further!The Black Church The Root of the Problems of the Black Community

Some much information! Feb 21, 2008
This book took over 25 years to research and write. Dr. Lee June took his time with this one and has really explained the history of the Black church in so many facets. This is the most facinating book I've ever read.
