Rev. Herbert D. Daughtry, Sr., is the well-known minister and author of No Monopoly on Suffering: Blacks and Jews in Crown Heights -- and Elsewhere (AWP 1997). From his childhood in segregated Georgia to his current ministry, Daughtry has intellectually and practically confronted the challenges of deepening faith in a personal God and expressing that faith in political, historical, and collective ways. How can one simultaneously love one's people and-in trying times-love the world?

The sermons, speeches, and lectures collected in this volume, composed over a number of years, address, among related issues: Merging race consciousness with religious conviction; the function of Christianity in a Black community often viewing it as the white man's "trick bag" to maintain Black subservience and blindness; and the Africanness of Christianity, and yet, its universality.

The book is divided into four sections: A Christologican Statement; The Theology of Liberation; A Historical Contemporary statement on the Black Church and the Preacher, and "A Message To My People." In aggregate, these writings constitute a timely and indispensable statement of muscular Christianity in a race-conscious setting. Only Rev. Daughtry could have composed and delivered them!
