Mighty Like A River: The Black Church And Social Reform


book
by Andrew Billingsley. Oxford University Press, 2003.

In this book Billingsley makes the case that the Black Church is “mighty like a river” in its community outreach and social activist roles. The book sketches the history of the Black Church’s social and community outreach efforts and gives an up-to-date picture of current Black Church social reform efforts. Especially useful is a profile of leading churches involved in social activism from economic development to outreach to urban Black youth. This book is an excellent resource for congregations interested in model urban ministries.
