Lenten Reflections on the Spirituals
By Luke Powery
Valuable not only for their sublime musical expression, the African American spirituals provide profound insights into the human condition and Christian life. Many spirituals focus on the climax of the Christian drama, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the ways in which those events bring about the liberation of Godís people. In these devotions for the season of Lent, Powery leads the reader through the spirituals as they confront the mystery of Christís atoning death and victory over the grave. This is one for the ages.
