An introduction to and primer on African American preaching.
Groundbreaking. This is the word to describe Introduction to African American Preaching,
a book that acknowledges African American preaching as an academic discipline. Readers will gain insight into the history of the study of African American preaching tradition and catch author Frank Thomas’ enthusiasm for it. He shows how African American preaching has gradually moved from an almost exclusively oral tradition to an oral/written tradition and then traces the relationship between homiletics and rhetoric in Western preaching. Thomas also explores how the African American church can remain relevant to the millennial generation. The word again is groundbreaking.
