Item description for Discipleship for African American Christians: A Journey Through the Church Covenant by William C. Turner...
Overview These discipleship studies take one of the most valuable documents in black Baptist churches as an occasion to reflect on the meaning of the Christian walk for today's believers. An ideal resource for new church members or for others who want to understand more about the nature of the faith they are proclaiming, this thorough discipleship resource ends each chapter with a summary of key points, as well as questions for reflection intended to help readers understand and apply the lessons found in the chapter. William Turner used the Church Covenant, a short statement of faith that many African American Baptists have committed to memory, as a vehicle for teaching the Baptist faith, with special attention paid to how the Covenant is grounded in the person, work, and experience of the Holy Spirit. Each chapter is based on a phrase from the Covenant itself and explores the Scriptural foundations for the phrase and the belief expressed in it. This book is ideal for personal or small-group study, as well as for Christian education and Sunday school settings.
Publishers Description Each chapter explores a phrase from the Baptist Covenant popular in the Black Church.
