Kenyatta Gilbert demonstrates why he is one of the brightest and most creative homiletical minds of his generation." --DeForest Blake "Buster" Soaries, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens, Somerset, New Jersey

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a fresh and creative look at African American preaching. It is a short, but powerful and refreshing read. Dr. Gilbert is a bright young homilectical mind for his generation. Especially relevant is Gilbert's discussion on the seven personas of African American preachers. This book should have a long shelf life as a teaching tool for trivocal preaching and it will be a rich resource for ministers of the gospel.

This is a must read for all pastors and preachers ,especially those who feel called to prophetic preaching and ministry. Dr. Gilbert is Homiletics Professor at Howard University School of Divinity in Washington, DC and I had him for the course "African-American Prophetic Preaching." Excellent course. Excellent book. Gentle read. Explains prophet, priest, sage and other dynamics at play in prophetic preaching, as well as historical significance of different periods in African American preaching.

I am a fan of Kenyatta Gilbert's "Black Preaching" and it gives me a sense of more security. I was introduced to this book while in seminary and I have decided to keep the book for future reference. If you are looking for a little assistance with hermeneutics and exegeses, along with several others on the same topic this one will get you going in the right direction.
