Endorsements"Here's a book about preaching that preaches on every page. Harris understands preaching from the Black experience. His voice is authentic. At the same time he sings the power of God in Jesus Christ. James Harris has written a wonderful book."
--David G. Buttrick
Professor of Homiletics and Liturgics Vanderbilt University
"James Harris speaks from within the African American experience of oppression in developing a homiletic bent on liberating and transforming individuals and society. He holds high the finest models of Black preaching, with their biblical passion, poetic fluency, and fervor for social justice, in fashioning a design for preaching. While Harris's homiletic is rooted in the African American experience, it thrives in all kinds of soil. Anyone committed in preaching to releasing the power and intentionality of Scripture to free souls for personal and corporate fulfillment will profit from time spent with Harris in these pages."
