Reviews

"The extensive research and comprehensive treatment of a vast array of historical players would seem ideally suited for general and religious historians, social ethicists, and scholars of African American studies. The author examines extensively the ethical ideals and activities of Theodore Parker and discusses considerably Horace Mann and Ralph Waldo Emerson. . . . . helps us to evaluate these persons in a more comprehensive manner and perhaps better understand their actions and stances on other issues as outlined in the traditional American religious and church histories. Joseph Washington, thus, has provided information crucial to the construction of African American church history and the reconstruction of general American religious history." _ Theology Today
