A BOLD AND PROVOCATIVE EXPLORATION OF ONE OF THE MOST RELIGIOUSLY VIBRANT PLACES IN AMERICA-A STATE PENITENTIARYBaraka, Al, Teddy, and Sayyid: Four black men from South Philly, two Christian and two Muslim, are serving life at Pennsylvania's maximum-security Graterford Prison. All of them work in the prison chapel, where they have regular opportunities to dispute the workings of God, and man. Day in, day out, everything is in its twisted way, ordinary. And then one of them disappears. Down in the Chapel tells the story of one week in Graterford's chapel. We learn how the men at Graterford pass their time, care for themselves, foster relationships, and commune with their makers. We observe Evangelicals, Catholics, Jews, and black Muslims at prayer and study and song. Dubler explores the many uses prisoners make of their religions and weighs the circumstances that make these uses possible. Gritty, viseral, meditative, and searching, it is an essential study of American religion on the age of mass incarceration.
