"James Harris focuses on applied black theology, how the church on the corner in a black community needs to manifest its ministry. In doing so, he emphasizes an important aspect of the theological and pastoral discussion—a corrective to theologies that are fragmentary, culture-bound, and incomplete. Black theology, like all good theology, is liberating and needs to avoid the flaw of making God a tribal deity. This Harris accomplishes, stating his case in terms that are inclusive enough to cover God's care and concern for all person."
