African American Church Growth: 12 Principles for Prophetic Ministry. Carlyle Fielding Stewart III, Abingdon Press 1994.

Filling a need not previously addressed, African American Church Growth contends that it is precisely the prophetic consciousness which appeals to many blacks of the post-civil rights era, and that emphasis on the prophetic will help bring the black church out of the disillusionment of a "post-civil rights malaise". Carlyle Fielding Stewart defines prophetic ministry as a concern for wholeness of the individual and community. Going beyond a simple call for social justice, the author addresses both spiritual and tyrannies, within and without the church, that preclude church growth in our center cities and rural communities. Dr. Stewart demonstrates with practical examples how tyranny can be overcome in thriving black churches.Recommended by David Schoen, Evangelism Ministry Team Leader.
