Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There is a problem in the black church. It is a problem with black bodies and a blues problem. This book addresses these problems head-on. It proclaims that as long as the black church cannot be a home for certain bodies, such as LGBT bodies, then it has forsaken its very black faith identity. The black church must find a way back to itself. Kelly Brown Douglas argues that the way back is through the blues.

Synopsis:

Blues is absolutely vital to black theological reflection and to the black church's existence. In Black Bodies and the Black Church, author Kelly Douglas Brown developsa blues crossroad theology, which allows the black church to remain true to itself and relevant in black lives.
