Tuesday Books: ‘The Faithful Preacher’ (Thabiti Anyabwile)


In honor of Martin Luther King Day yesterday, I wanted to point you to one of the few books that I have that deals with the often neglected area of Church history, namely the history of the African-American Church. Thabiti Anyabwile (I am still working on pronouncing his last name) has written a book on three pastors who come from that tradition: Lemuel Haynes, Daniel Payne, and Francis Grimke. The lives of these men span from the 18th to the 20th century and provide an interesting glimpse into the history of the black church in America. If you are interested in this part of Church history, then Anyabwile’s book would be a good place to start.
