Saints in Exile: The Holiness-Pentecostal Experience in African American Religion and Culture / Edition 1by Cheryl J. Sanders, Harry S. Stout
Pub. Date: 03/25/1999
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
Saints in Exile studies, from an insider's perspective, the worship practices and social ethics of the African American family of Holiness, Pentecostal and Apostolic churches known collectively as the Sanctified Church. Cheryl Sanders identifies the theme of exile, both as an idea and an experience, as the key to understanding the dialectical nature of African American religious and intellectual life, that W.E.B. Du Bois called "double-conscious".
