From lament to advocacy

Ordinarily we only blog about media pieces that otherwise don’t fit easily into the bibliography which, let’s face it, is heavily print oriented. But a new book just out — From Lament to Advocacy: Black Religious Educators and Public Ministry — is such a powerful resource that it’s worth highlighting here.

Written by nine African American scholars of religious education, this book weaves together critical pedagogy, theological reflection, and personal/communal experiences into a compelling exploration of religious education. Its clear focus on racial justice is highly effective, and the book is both an accessible read and full of footnotes and other connections to a variety of literatures.

It is a book worth engaging in multiple courses and spaces far beyond religious education.
