SCHOLARSHIP AND PUBLICATIONS

  1. Book Publications

The Journey and Promise of African American Preaching (Fortress Press: Minneapolis, 2011). 170 pp.

This practical theology homiletics text analyzes the biblical, theological and sociocultural elements appearing in African American preaching in North America. Apart from its critique of contemporary homiletics, this book asserts that the survival of both Black churches and African America at large is tied to preachers recovering a trivocal approach to preaching that incorporates the scriptural voices of prophet, priest, and sage: three distinctive hallmarks of the African American pulpit. This first volume is a constructive effort to examine the historical contributions of African American preaching, the challenges it faces today, and how it might become a renewed source of healing and strength for at-risk communities and churches.

 

A Pursued Justice:  Black Preaching from the Great Migration to Civil Rights (Baylor Press:  Waco, Tx. 2016). 210 pp.

This is a second volume on African American trivocal preaching, which describes preaching that incorporates three distinctive accents of the African American pulpit: the prophetic, priestly, and sagely voices. This second volume focuses on the prophetic voice and the vital role it played during the Great Migration of the early 20th century, taking the fundamental premise that contemporary preaching, African American or otherwise, can become more communally constructive and consequential for our times    when the preacher reclaims in spoken Word the voice of the prophet that speaks justice, divine intentionality, and hope.
