This issue gives voice to a segment of the black community. The writers cannot be said to be speaking for black Christians as a whole. But what you will read does portray what some of our black brethren are thinking and saying. Clarence Hilliard is an angry evangelical from Chicago who calls it as he sees it. Michael Haynes deals with the Boston busing impasse; he is a minister, a politician, and a board member of an evangelical college. The interview with John Perkins tells the story of one man’s pilgrimage against great odds. Finally, James Tinney describes black preaching style, one of the main differences between black and white worship services.
