The Turner E.A.G.L.E. Technique for Incarnation Centered Spirituality
This book is about an African American Spirituality that is rooted in the biblical doctrine of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ. It also develops the biblical teachings of a spiritual discipline expressed in American Negro Spirituals. The enslaved Africans and African Americans who refused to be destroyed psychologically or spiritually by the dehumanizing conditions of slavery created these spirituals. This book examines the spiritual method they used.
It develops and discusses this method as “The Turner EAGLE Technique, revealing an Incarnation Centered Spirituality, the fivefold path to wholeness” that melds Christian spirituality with the contemporary struggle for equality, social justice, freedom, and identity. This book also introduces major concepts of African American Theology rooted in the African American segment of the Church. However, this book is about a method to find the peace that seems to elude us. Even though, we call ourselves Christians, violence and decay are evident in our major African American communities.
This book points out the paths to an inward journey, to find freedom, justice, and identity, through Embracing, Affection, Generating, Life, and Enlightenment. Moreover, through the same paths, you are shown how to begin to restore, heal and love, instead of destroying. This book is a guide for everyone who would like to regain wholeness and work to bring it to the Beloved Community. Its author has spent his lifetime thinking and studying the African American Experience as a pastor of predominantly African American Churches.
