Cleophus LaRue argues that the extraordinary character of black preaching derives from a distinctive biblical hermeneutic that views God as involved in practical ways in the lives of African Americans. This hermeneutic, he believes, has remained constant since the days of slavery. LaRue analyzes the distinct characteristics of African American preaching and brings the insights of both theory and practice to bear on this important subject matter.
