Collection Of African Religion Volume 2

This is an excellent exploration and analysis of African Religious thoughts and practices. The author's expositions are detailed, especially when speaking about the usually more obscure African societies. What's extremely interesting is the logic behind the practices such as (before entering 'rites of passage') leaving a child in the wilderness temporarily in order to teach the child that alone they are nothing, they literally do not exist.

Sketching the religious landscape of African American communities today, Pinn makes explicit the tension in traditional conversations about black religion that privilege either Christianity in particular or organizations (with doctrines and creeds) in general. Discussing the misunderstandings and historical inaccuracies of such views, Pinn offers an alternate theory of black religion that begins with a basic push for embodied meaning as its core impulse.
