Wisdom, health, honor, hope--these revered ideals are now jeopardized, James Evans claims, by the towering social problems of North American society, nowhere more achingly and emblematically than in African American life. In this book, the author creates a practical theology by working at the intersection of religious understandings in the African American community and its most pressing problems. He skillfully probes to their deepest cultural and religious roots. There the moral distortions of racism, poverty, shame, disease, dysfunctional families, and even problematic elements in religious life can be excised so that new, more helpful ideas of grace, salvation, and community can flourish.
