A vital look at the nature, destiny, and mission of the black family and the black church today.
Roots of a Black Future: Family and Church seeks to continue a discussion revolving around families and church in the black experience, both to their symbolic and actual relationship. It explores the deeper meaning of church as family and family as church. Grounded in the context of black families and churches within American society, this book also acknowledges that black communities are affected by society as a whole, a society largely controlled by the white community. But those societal circumstances do not control or determine how the black community unites. The book’s main focus is upon the nature, destiny, and mission of black families and churches in this country, in the hopes of unifying these two parts of life.
