This was a good book. I wish I read the previous book “Black Man’s Religion” as the book refers to it several times, and I think it would discuss more in detail about the experience of being black and Christian. Reading the history of Christianity in Africa was illuminating–it was the first time I read such a thing, and it showed me how seriously lacking I am in my knowledge of black church history.
This book makes for a good information source…half the book is footnotes, which is just as interesting as the text, but made for a slower reading.
