Having finished reading The Black Church: This is Our Story, This is our Song by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., we will begin discussions of Revelations: Vision, Prophecy, & Politics in the Book of Revelation by Elaine Pagels. We will see how far we can go with the first chapter, John’s Revelation: Challenging the Evil Empire, Rome on Sunday, March 26.

Here are links to the recordings of our discussions of The Black Church.

When we finish Revelations, we will start Peniel E. Joseph’s book The Third Reconstruction: America’s Struggle for Racial Justice in the Twenty-First Century
