Book Review: Soul Stories
Name of Book; Soul Stories: Author; Anne Streaty Wimberly: Number of Pages; 155. Anne stories' are about " The Soul's Search for Liberation and Vocation" in African Americans. She is an Associate Professor of Christian Education and Church music at Atlanta's Interdenominational Theological Center, an experienced teacher and researcher. Based on her years of teaching across all ages and cultures, especially in the African American Culture, she feels she has developed and reintroduced a "new-yet-old" teaching style. Anne further believes this type of teaching can be resourceful and successfully implemented when "working with black children, youth and adults in their struggles to experience themselves as whole."
Anne Argued that this model and style of teaching are best demonstrated by a process of linking Christian Faith Stories with every day life experiences. In this exercise, the participants are encouraged to reflect critically on historical events, along with current life experiences. As a result they are able to discern the liberating activity of God and accept his calling for their vocations. According to Anne, this model can be both encouraging and inspiring in the lives of those who are faced with life circumstances with which they can identify. Anne listed" five primary assumptions undergird the story- linking model in Christian Education". (1) The reclaiming of the story-linking process found in the early slave community. (2) Story-linking model is appropriately undertaken in an intergenerational Christian educational setting. (3) Similarity between the issues as well as the contexts that are addressed in Scriptures and the issues and the contexts African Americans address today.

Format: Paperback
Soul Stories by Anne Streaty Wimberly explains, by use of case studies and activities, a four step process of Proclaiming the story to our youth in Christian Education. This African American view of Christian Education, offers instruction to adults for a "How to..." when teaching other youth. Dr. Wimberly states the importance of understanding the liberation thought of the early African American Educators and it's importance to the art of vocation. The book is laid out for the reader to engage in study of the African American prespective of educating the Christian Faith. Using four primary pahses, the reader can examine the everyday story, the Christian Faith story in the Bible, the Christian Faith story in African American heritage and in Christian Ethical decision making. These processes will enhance a person's understanding of the biblical text in how it liberates one to follow the call to a God inspired vocation.
