Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0817017283, Paperback)

The African American church has a charge to keep.
KEY FEATURES:

- Reviews the history of the black church’s social justice contributions and leadership
- Establishes today’s need for justice ministries in the congregation and community
- Spotlights real-life ministries and initiatives
- Provides sample training manual materials

At a time when the African American church is increasingly associated with the controversial prosperity gospel, pastors Danielle Ayers and Reginald Williams remind black church leaders of the prophetic call to “do justice.” Exploring first the biblical foundations for justice work that goes beyond charity, the authors also recall the storied history of the black church’s leadership in the Civil Rights Movement. From there, this practical resource establishes the contemporary need for justice ministries in the congregation and the community. From initiatives of care and education to programs of action and collaboration, discover the transforming impact the church can have on society, culture, and community through diverse social justice ministries. Features Spotlights on real-life ministries and initiatives, common justice issues, and a resource guide to assist in the creation and sustaining of ministries of justice.
