Informationen zum Autor Paul Harvey is professor of history at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. He is the author of Redeeming the South: Religious Cultures and Racial Identities Among Southern Baptists! 1865-1925 and Freedom's Coming: Religious Culture and the Shaping of the South from the Civil War through the Civil Rights Era. Klappentext Paul Harvey illustrates how black Christian traditions provided theological, institutional, and personal strategies for cultural survival during bondage and into an era of partial freedom. At the same time, he covers the ongoing tug-of-war between themes of 'respectability' versus practices derived from an African heritage; the adoption of Christianity by the majority; and the critique of the adoption of the 'white man's religion' from the eighteenth century to the present. The book also covers internal cultural, gendered, and class divisions in churches that attracted congregants of widely disparate educational levels, incomes, and worship styles.
