“The Black Church” from Christian Faith Publishing author Leroy E. Adams, Jr. is an engaging commentary focusing on the African American church community and how it serves as a central social institution rich with tradition and underappreciated diversity, as well as a vitality that Adams further explores to properly establish the black church’s role and identity in the history of Christendom.
“The Black Church”: a compelling study of the African American church community. “The Black Church” is the creation of published author Leroy E. Adams, Jr., nicknamed “Hurricane Adams,” a gospel minister and devoted servant of God for over thirty-five years; a father, grandfather, and native of Buffalo, New York.
Adams shares, “Notions of religious faith and freedom have shaped much of American political and social philosophy. For many Americans, religion is not just a way of thinking but a way of life. In African American history, the church has long stood at the center of black communities establishing itself as the greatest source for religious enrichment and secular development.
To capture a sense of the shared historical experiences of African Americans, in particular African American Christians, the phrase ‘the black church’ evolved. The phrase has developed into a term for expressing the eminence of black churches in black communities. Although the term ‘the black church’ is a bit misleading, it presents a tangible characteristic of race and religion unique to African American history. For many African American Christians, despite their denominational differences, black churches have always represented the basis of religion, community, and home.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Leroy E. Adams, Jr.’s new book is a culturally critical attempt to distinguish the black church’s unique contributions to the history and development of Christianity.
Adams brings out the black church’s rich past, vibrant present, and its promising future, not only as a central feature of African American life but also as a crucial harbinger of God’s kingdom on earth.
