Passionately Human, No Less Divine:
Religion and Culture in Black Chicago, 1915-1952
Wallace D. Best

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Best's work is rich, exciting, sophisticated and nuanced. It presents a new model for research on black religiosity that is long overdue."--Kimberley Phillips, College of William and Mary

"We've been waiting for this book for many years. Wallace Best understands both the content and meaning of the religious practice associated with the Great Migration better than just about anyone who has studied this event. In Passionately Human, No Less Divine, Best insightfully explores the Great Migration's transformation of the relationship between religious culture and civic culture in American cities--and thereby transforms our understanding of this 'journey of faith.'"--James Grossman, Vice-President, The Newberry Library, and co-editor of The Encyclopedia of Chicago
