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.

Format: Paperback
The author sounds a clarion call for African American preachers of the Gospel to return to the things that made them distinctive, prophetic and powerful in a culture of oppression. He also helps educate others on the mystery and unique gift of African American preaching within the Body of Christ.

Gilbert provides compact but insightful outline and suggestion on Black Preaching.
He suggests trivocal voices of Black Preaching: prophetic, sage and pastoral voices.

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.
