About the Author:

Arthur C. Jones is a clinical psychologist who teaches at the University of Denver. He is also the founder of The Spirituals Project, a nonprofit organization that is working actively to perserve and revitalize the spirituals tradition. Active in choral groups in high school and college, Dr. Jones returned to singing with private vocal study at the age of 41. Since 1991 he has conducted workshops and solo lecture-concert programs on spirituals in a variety of venues throughout the United States.

Review:

"Once in a while a book comes along that literally sings ...Such is Wade in the Water. Arthur Jones has done us all a service by recreating the very fiber of African-American culture" --Andrew Billingsley, Author of Climbing Jacob's Ladder

"A mesmerizing treatise on the beginning, development and refinement of the Negro Spiritual and its important cultural and psychological meanings.... It is a welcome addition to our understanding of humanity." --Horace Clarence Boyer Author of The Golden Age of Gospel
