Righteous Riches : The Word of Faith Movement in Contemporary African American Religion
In "Righteous Riches", Milmon F. Harrison examines the Word of Faith movement, an independent, non-denominational Christian movement that preaches the so-called 'health and wealth gospel.' Drawing on his personal experiences as a former insider and in-depth interviews with members, Harrison takes us inside the movement, revealing what it is like to belong, and how people accept, reject, and reshape Word of Faith doctrines to fit their own lives.
