Preaching Black Lives (Matter) is an anthology that asks, "What does it mean to be church where if Black lives matter?"

Prophetic imagination would have us see a future in which all Christians would be free of the soul-warping belief and practice of racism. This collection of reflections is an incisive look into that future today. It explains why preaching about race is important in the elimination of racism in the church and society, and how preaching has the ability to transform hearts. While programs, protests, conferences, and laws are all important and necessary, less frequently discussed is the role of the church, specifically the Anglican Church and Episcopal Church, in ending systems of injustice. The ability to preach from the pulpit is mandatory for every person, clergy or lay, regardless of race, who has the responsibility to spread the gospel.

For there's a saying in the Black church, "If it isn't preached from the pulpit, it isn't important."

Gayle Fisher-Stewart, Paul Roberts Abernathy, Allen
