Label inside front cover. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 64 pages; Sacred memories are important to all cultures. The social and cultural foundations of the black Church in America provide the sacred memories for African American Christians.

This book of essays expresses some of my perceptions as an African-American clergywoman. I am indebted to the writings of a Jewish theologian; Rabbi Emil Fackenheim spoke of "sacred memories." His 2000 essay on "Faith in God and Man After Auschwitz: Theological Implications" acknowledged that interpretation of current events cannot be abstractly theological but must be concrete and political, as it were, "theopolitical." This is what I hope to express in these essays.
