Another World is Possible by Dwight N. Hopkins
Book Description'Another World is Possible' examines the many peoples who have mobilized religion and spirituality to forge identity. Some claim direct links to indigenous spiritual practices; others have appropriated externally introduced religions, modifying these with indigenous perspectives and practices. The voices of Black people from around the world are presented in essays ranging from the Indian subcontinent, Japan and Australia to Africa, the UK and the USA. From creation narratives to trickster heroes, from the role of spirituality in HIV positive South Africa to its place in mental health and among the poor, spirituality is shown to be essential to the survival of individuals and communities.

Loving the Body, Paperback (September 2007)» View all books by Dwight N. Hopkins
The Black Church has been extremely silent about issues surrounding the sexual dimension of the body, the appreciation of the body, and the erotic. This work presents an argument that the Black Church must begin to address the significance of sexuality if it is to actually present liberation as a mode of existence that fully appreciates the body.
