About the Author:

J. Gordon Melton, Ph.D., is director of the Institute for the Study of American Religion at the University of California at Santa Barbara. He has a Masters of Divinity from the Garrett Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. from Northwestern University. Dr. Melton is the author or editor of more than 3 dozen books and anthologies and he has written hundreds of papers and articles for scholarly journals. Among the works he has written on religion in America are The Encyclopedia of American Religions, American Religions: An Illustrated History, and Encyclopedia of African American Religion.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up-In-depth coverage of diverse religious worship practiced among African Americans is presented. Murphy examines popular Christian religions, but also explores Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and more. The well-written account begins with the religious experiences of the first Africans in America, moves to the establishment of pioneer religious institutions, and culminates with a chapter on the current status of diverse congregations. In between are useful chapters on important historical events, including the process of the triangular slave trade, emancipation, and the Civil Rights era. Students will find ample material on well-known historical figures and current leaders, such as Sojourner Truth, Mary McLeod Bethune, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Jesse Jackson. Unfortunately, three lines of text are missing from one page. However, with a wealth of information accompanied by black-and-white photographs, the book is still a serviceable choice for curriculum support and public libraries.
