Africentric Approaches to Christian Ministry
In a pluralistic world where the tendency is to dismiss or silence ethnic and racial differences, Africentric Approaches to Christian Ministry: Strengthening Urban Congregations in African American Communities offers invaluable insight into the ordering of urban congregational life, Christian ministry, and urban missiology from a worldview perspective that values the centrality of African people. Theological leaders and framers of African American religious studies, such as the following persons provide provocative insight for theological reflection and praxis: Gayraud Wilmore (The Black Church); J. Deotis Roberts (Africentric Christianity); Katie Geneva Cannon (Diaspora Ethics); and Cain Hope Fielder (New Testament Studies). The opening and closing chapters by co-editors Ronald Edward Peters and Marsha Snulligan Haney provide a critical knowledge base that frames Africentric Approaches to Christian Ministry. In light of the rapidly changing nature of Christianity globally (non-Western and non-European), this is a significant study on African American religious consciousness and urban praxis.
