Overview

One of the most pressing religious issues facing the African American Christian community is the growth of Islam amongst Blacks. In this fascinating historical study, Marsha Snulligan Haney identifies the general factors that are responsible for this growth as well as the specific reasons why Islam appeals to so many African Americans, in particular Black inner city-males. She reveals the areas where Protestant churches need to develop a relevant mission and ministry to Muslims and provides the criteria necessary for developing a model that could be used to re-evangelize the African American community. A provocative and timely work, Islam and Protestant African American Churches is an indispensable resource for religious scholars and ministers interested in meeting the new challenges that stem from the growth of Islam.
