Cleophus LaRue: I Believe I’ll Testify

The volume contains a forthright and honest appraisal of LaRue’s faith and faults. This reviewer particularly appreciates the author’s position that both black and white preachers have something to offer the other in the area of homiletics. While the author naturally praises black preaching, he does not put down white preaching. This reviewer is also grateful for how most black preachers desire justice for all—whites as well as blacks. The author’s emphasis on the importance of imagination and creativity, a real strength of black preachers, provides another major plus for the book. For instance, the book includes an excellent chapter on ‘Imagination and the Exegetical Exercise,’ that is to say, how to harness the imagination and its sources. This book should inspire further interest in American black preaching by both black and white preachers.
