VARIETIES OF AFRICAN AMERICAN RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE
Full Product Description
Based on extensive interviews, travel, and research -- embellished with ample photos, bibliographies, and case studies -- Pinn provides an insider look at Voodoo, Orisha devotion, Santeria, the Nation of Islam, and Black Humanism in the U.S. Focusing less on institutional and doctrinal history and more on the varied popular religious practices and sites, his volume highlights the influence of Caribbean religions in the U.S., practices of divination and healing, the surge of black Muslim religion, the emergence of black humanism, religious influences on the ethical practices of black women, and the import of previously overlooked religious settings (e.g., church women's clubs, local politics, Pentecostal religion, private religious practices).
The emergent picture, more subtle, varied, and vibrant than traditional black Christian marks a new era in African American religious studies.
VARIETIES OF AFRICAN AMERICAN RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE by Pinn was published by Augsburg Fortress Publishers in November 1998. The ISBN for VARIETIES OF AFRICAN AMERICAN RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE is 9780800629946.
