    Baldwin offers powerful insight into the two major movements of his time: Christian and Nation of Islam movements. He sorts out each of their respective problems. I liked the book because Baldwin took a creative approach to make an important point. The rhetorical delivery was excellent. Definitely a keeper.

    The Fire Next Time

    The book ¿The Fire Next Time¿ is an intensely personal book and an important historical document. The main conflict of this book is James Baldwin controversial view of the Black Muslim moment. Also the statement about the reality of being black in America. To defend oneself against a fear is simply to insure that one will, one day, be conquered by it: fears must be faced. All I really remember is the pain, the unspeakable pain, it was as though I was yelling up to heaven and heaven would not hear me. What I liked about the book ¿The Fire Next Time¿ was how black people in America have been through a lot of things and they keep living. What I didn¿t like about the book was how white people used foul language towards the blacks. I would recommend this book. I would recommend this book because it shows good information about the blacks in America. If you like books about the blacks go on with there life you should read this book.
