Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is an excellent collection of essays dealing with the multidimensional relationships between black churches and American politics since the civil rights movement. These fine essays cover a variety of topics from a historical overview of the role of black churches in politics to the issues of civil society, civil religion, gender discrimination, Pentecostalism and politics, community development corporations, and ethical reflections on Charitable Choice. This volume is highly recommended to scholars, clergy, seminarians, and lay leaders who want to keep up with contemporary developments in black church involvement in politics.”—Lawrence H. Mamiya, coauthor of The Black Church in the African American Experience


“This scholarly work provides stimulating perspectives on the interface of members of the black religious community with public policy and moral imperatives. The first volume has whetted my appetite for subsequent publishings and deepened my appreciation for the venture. The continuing struggle for the 'beloved community' is well served by a journey through the pages of this publication.”—Joseph E. Lowery, Co-founder and President Emeritus, Southern Christian Leadership Conference and Convenor, Georgia Coalition for the Peoples’ Agenda


“This volume, uniquely, fills an urgent need for reliable information and analysis concerning the style and manner of civic engagement of the black church since the civil rights movement. Anyone who wants to understand the role of the black church in current electoral politics and in government-financed faith-based initiatives in housing, community development, and other programs must read this book.”—Mary Frances Berry, Chairperson, United States Commission on Civil Rights and Geraldine R. Segal Professor of American Social Thought and Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania
