Description

The variety and complexity of its traditions make African American religion among the most difficult topics in religious studies to teach to undergraduates. The sheer scope of the material to be covered is daunting to instructors, many of whom are not experts in African American religious traditions, but are called upon to include material on African American religion in courses on American Religious History or the History of Christianity. Also, the unfamiliarity of the subject matter to the vast majority of students makes it difficult to achieve any depth in the brief time allotted in the survey courses where it is usually first encountered. The essays in this volume will supply functional, innovative ways to teach African American religious traditions in a variety of settings.show more

A thoughtful, well-written volume that takes seriously teh challenges of teachign African American religions and its importance to the study of the nature of religion generally. In so doing, this book fills a gaping hole in the pedagogical literature of theology and religious studies. * The Authors * A thoughtful, well-written volume that takes seriously the challenges of teaching African American religions and its importance to the study of the nature of religion generally...
