Effective preaching during intense social change, racial unrest, and violence.
African American pastors often preach with a raw and holy emotion rarely seen in the broader scope of Protestant churches. This effective method, which is often used when speaking about issues of intense social injustice, is part of the African American prophetic rhetorical tradition. In Exodus Preaching, the first book of its kind, author Kenyatta R. Gilbert explores the manner in which African American pastors distinctively invest great symbolic significance to the Exodus story in a way that relates to non-African American audiences. Practical suggestions and exercises equip all pastors with the theological resources needed to preach prophetically.
