African American Christian Worship by Melva Wilson Costen, Melva W. Costen

The first study of the history and theology of worship from the African American perspective.

In this lively theology and history of African American worship, the author documents how the African religious taproot, replanted in slavery and reshaped by the Christian gospel, can now bear fruit in authentic and empowered worship.
