Overview

Through the Storm, Through the Night: A History of African American Christianity by Paul Harvey

Paul Harvey illustrates how black Christian traditions provided theological, institutional, and personal strategies for cultural survival during bondage and into an era of partial freedom. At the same time, he covers the ongoing tug-of-war between themes of respectability versus practices derived from an African heritage; the adoption of Christianity by the majority; and the critique of the adoption of the white man's religion from the eighteenth century to the present. The book also covers internal cultural, gendered, and class divisions in churches that attracted congregants of widely disparate educational levels, incomes, and worship styles.
