“How do we look back to learn as we move forward to celebrate and build new social relationships for our families, religious believers, communities and the world?” This is the question that the Sankofa Institute for African American Pastoral Leadership sets out to answer in this collection of essays, based on lectures from its first five years of ministry. Steeped in spirituality, relishing African American cultural heritage, aware of political forces, and keen on the economic realities of the twenty-first century, this volume offers rich theological and ethical reflection as well as concrete and practical application of biblical insights for the contemporary world.
