This Far by Faith

Stories from the African American Religious Experience
  • By Juan Williams
Product Description

Religion has played a pivotal but largely unheralded role in shaping not only the African-American experience, but also many of the ideals that are central to our notions of democracy and justice in America today. Slaves who were confronted with the Christianity of their captors did not merely adopt the religion; they used its principles and practices to forge a path to freedom and deliverance, changing the very moral fabric of our country in the process. In This Far by Faith, Juan Williams and Quinton Dixie tell the story of how religious faith inspired the greatest social movement in American history -- the Civil Rights Movement.

Juan Williams is a contributor to National Public Radio and appears regularly on Fox News. A former reporter for the Washington Post, he is the author of Thurgood Marshall: American Revolutionary and Eyes on the Prize, the companion volume to the award-winning PBS series.

Quinton Dixie is a professor of Religious Studies and an adjunct professor of African American Studies at Indiana University. He studied at Michigan University and the Union Theological Seminary in New York.
