Over the last thirty years, African American voices and perspectives have become essential to the study of the various theological disciplines. Writing out of their particular position in the North American context, African American thinkers have contributed significantly to biblical studies, theology, church history, ethics, sociology of religion, homiletics, pastoral care and a number of other fields. Frequently the work of these African American scholars is brought together in the seminary curriculum under the rubric of the black church studies class. Drawing on these several disciplines, the black church studies class seeks to give an account of the broad meaning of Christian faith in the African American experience.

Black Church Studies: An Introduction is a comprehensive textbook designed to meet the needs of students and instructors in these classes. Drawing on the work of specialists in several fields, it introduces all of the core theological disciplines from an African American standpoint, from African American biblical interpretation to womanist theology and ethics to sociological understandings of the life of African American churches. This book will become an indispensable resource for all those preparing to serve in African American congregations, or to understand African American contributions to the study of Christian faith.

This volume looks at the diverse definitions and functions of the Black Church, as well as the ways in which race, class, religion and gender inform its evolution. It also provides a comprehensive view of the contributions of African American Scholarship to the current theological discussion. Written by scholars with broad expertise in a number of subject areas and disciplines, it will enable the reader to relate the work of African American theological scholars to the tasks of preaching, teaching and leading in local congregations.
