Using a variety of first and second-hand sources-- some objective, some personal-- the author analyzes the transformation of the African religions into evangelical Christianity.

A fire in the bones : reflections on African-American religious history by Albert J Raboteau( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Fire in the Bones is a fascinating and moving collection of essays from one of America's most prominent scholars of religious history. In his first book since the classic, Slave Religion, Albert Raboteau shows how the active faith of African-Americans shaped their religious institutions and forged the struggle for social justice throughout their history. Covering many traditions - Baptist revivals, the AME Church, Black Catholics, African orisa religions - Raboteau reveals the pervasive faith of African-Americans that God was an actor in their history. This faith has enabled them to challenge America's self-image as "The Promised Land" and to fight the institutions of racism."--Jacket

American prophets : seven religious radicals and their struggle for social and political justice by Albert J Raboteau( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American Prophets sheds critical new light on the lives and thought of seven major prophetic figures in twentieth-century America whose social activism was motivated by a deeply felt compassion for those suffering injustice. In this compelling and provocative book, acclaimed religious scholar Albert Raboteau tells the remarkable stories of Abraham Joshua Heschel, A. J. Muste, Dorothy Day, Howard Thurman, Thomas Merton, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Fannie Lou Hamer--inspired individuals who succeeded in conveying their vision to the broader public through writing, speaking, demonstrating, and organizing. Raboteau traces how their paths crossed and their lives intertwined, creating a network of committed activists who significantly changed the attitudes of several generations of Americans about contentious political issues such as war, racism, and poverty. Raboteau examines the influences that shaped their ideas and the surprising connections that linked them together. He discusses their theological and ethical positions, and describes the rhetorical and strategic methods these exemplars of modern prophecy used to persuade their fellow citizens to share their commitment to social change. A momentous scholarly achievement as well as a moving testimony to the human spirit, American Prophets represents a major contribution to the history of religion in American politics. This book is essential reading for anyone who is concerned about social justice, or who wants to know what prophetic thought and action can mean in today's world. -- Provided by publisher

Self-realization of the Japanese Orthodox Church, 1912-1956 by Ilya Nikolayevich Kharin( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During Japan's Meiji period (1868--1912) of rapid Westernization, the propagation of Orthodox Christianity enjoyed remarkable success in Japan, outstripping the concomitant growth of Protestantism and Roman Catholicism in terms of missionary-to-convert ratio. The pattern and accomplishments of this outstanding modern mission of the Orthodox Church have attracted many researchers. However, few inquirers questioned the identity of the new "Japanese Orthodox Church"--A group which emerged as a result of this mission and took shape in the period of relative isolation from other Orthodox Christian centers, between 1912 and 1956. Yet, this group's identity is significant in at least three major historiographical contexts. It defies the current typologies of "foreign" (Protestant) and "native" (new religion) Japanese Christianity. It presents a unique instance of an irreducibly Russo-Japanese community which survived the ostensibly conflict-dominated tumultuous period of Russo-Japanese relations in the era of the World Wars. It starkly reveals the process whereby a new local Orthodox Church emerged in a time when most other missionary initiatives in the worldwide Orthodox communion disintegrated. To discern the dynamic of collective identity change, this work investigates the tension between the formal self-definition of the Japanese Orthodox Church and the practical institutional enactment of that identity. One focus of such tension was the issue of "apostolicity," centered on the institution of the bishop and the internal ordering of the group. Another contested parameter was "catholicity," a quality which problematized the group's boundaries by proclaiming universal reach. The study of the evolving practice of "apostolicity" and "catholicity" shows that the Japanese religious community in question has undergone a process of corporate self-realization as an Orthodox Church. Japanese Orthodox believers began their self-realization by unwittingly undercutting those central institutional arrangements which structurally defined their "Orthodoxy." When these institutional fixtures crumbled during the crisis precipitated by the pressures of World War II, Japanese Orthodox believers were jolted into a consciousness that their "Orthodoxy" was thereby impaired and raced to reestablish those very fixtures they had previously dismantled. Embedded in distinctive Church-state, Russo-Japanese, and international contexts, this is a study of a broadly applicable process of corporate self-realization
