The Heart of Black Preaching

Cleophus Larue

The Heart of Black Preaching

Cleophus Larue

$55.00

Paperback
By Midwest Book Review Cleophus J. LaRue's Heart Of Black Preaching provides important insights on why black preaching is strong and active, connecting with the real-life experiences of listeners. Too many preachers leave God out: LaRue considers the important connections between life experiences and religion which make black preachers so effective in their communities. Another reviewer wrote: This is a super book for anyone wanting to know the history and present day dynamics of black preaching. LaRue brings forth a wealth of information on great black preachers of the past and he also draws upon current African American preachers on the American scene. He claims there is a particular way of viewing God that is distinctive to black preaching. Moreover, he argues that there are five domains or spheres of black lived experience that are very helpful to black preaching. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to gain a greater understanding of the particulars of black preaching

- Publisher Cleophus LaRue argues that the extraordinary character of black preaching derives from a distinctive biblical hermeneutic that views God as involved in practical ways in the lives of African Americans. This hermeneutic, he believes, has remained constant since the days of slavery. LaRue examines the historical conditions and life situations that have led to this hermeneutic, analyzes the sermons of prominent preachers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and identifies three components critical to the development of a black sermon.
