Diana L. Hayes' Forged in the Firey Furnace is an excellent overview of African American spirituality from its African roots to its modern form throughout the African diaspora. Her sources are renowned scholars such as Albert Rabbateau, Peter J. Paris, John Mbiti, and others such as author Barbara Holmes. A good read.

Read as part of a college class. Not quite my cup of tea but as far as assigned reading goes, it was a delight.
