Reviews

“Religio-Political Narratives in the United States from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Jeremiah Wright effectively positions Christianity generally and the black church tradition in particular as the pivots for significant social change. … Religio-Political Narratives in the United States from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Jeremiah Wright is an interesting and thought-provoking analysis of the black church tradition.” (Linda D. Tomlinson, Journal of Church and State, Vol. 57, Autumn, 2015)
