In the holds of slave ships, Africans brought with them a hope for liberation, a strong oral tradition, and a sense of connectedness between their spiritual and physical lives. When Blacks converted to Christianity, these characteristics contributed to a Christian community that was, and is, distinctly different than the White church. In Breaking Down Barriers, Dwight Perry provides a brief history of the Black church in America and shows how it has survived as a shelter from a hostile world. He offers an introduction to Black evangelicalism, placing it in the context of both the traditional Black church and White evangelicalism. "The entity at the heart of the Black community in America is the Black church," writes Perry. "It has made its strong imprint not only on the Black community, but on the whole of society." Perry also provides a portrait of today's Black evangelical movement as well as ideas for multiracial ministry in the twenty-first century and beyond. Breaking Down Barriers helps Black and White Christians understand the African American church, enabling them to do away with misconceptions and build a new future together. (Originally published 1998 by Baker Book House, reprinted by permission.)

About the Author:

Dr. Dwight A. Perry oversees the Great Lakes regional conference of Converge Worldwide. Previously he served as Professor of Pastoral Studies at the Moody Bible Institute, as an executive with the Baptist General Conference and as a pastor of several churches. He was the first African American to earn a Ph.D. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He is editor of Building Unity in the Chruch of the New Millennium. Dr. Perry and his wife Cynthia live in Madison, Wisconsin. They have four grown children and four grandchildren.

From Library Journal:

The black church is the heart of its community, with a holistic gospel, unique preaching and music, and heartfelt worship. Perry (pastoral studies, Moody Bible Inst.) provides insight by noting its tribal priestly roots, its origins under slavery, and the development and shaping of the church both to preach the Christian gospel and to meet the needs of its people and community. The black church is also wrestling with the demands of a changing society. For example, Perry recognizes that the powerful black preaching of God's word has sometimes had an emotional fervor that nevertheless fails to address deeper spiritual needs. He offers recommendations that affect not just the black church but God's church as a whole as it seeks to break down racial barriers and answer the question, "Where do we go from here?" Recommended for all public libraries.?George Westerlund, Providence P.L.
