Notes
"[Edited by] J. Gordon Melton".
"Each issue of 'The Churches Speak' begins with an introductory essay which provides an overview of the topic itself and traces its recent historical manifestations. This essay also summarize, compares, and contrasts the opinions found in the individual statements, allowing the user to place each one in the appropriate context. Each essay concludes with bibliographic citations to sources for further reading on the topic. The statements presented in each monograph are arranged into four main sections based on broad religious families or traditions: The Roman Catholic Church (which represents the single largest religious body in the United States); Protestant and Eastern Orthodox Churches; Jewish Groups; and Other Religious Bodies. Within the Roman Catholic Church section, statements are arranged chronologically by issuing date. The remaining sections are subarranged alphabetically by individual churches, religious bodies, or ecumenical organizations; the statements issued by each organization are presented chronologically within that organization. Each of the four religious family sections is preceded by a note which provides background information of the family and analysis of its perspective on the issue in question." -- Preface.

Notes
"This impressive volume is both comprehensive and reliable. Three introductory essays probe the impact of religion, Martin Luther King and womanist theology on the African American community. The volume captures the diversity of experience and of religious traditions which touched African Americans; and of how other Americans came to understand and accept their importance" (p. 93). "[T]here is a rather useful chronology of African American religion ... At the end of the volume, the 'basic bibliography' is quite illuminating" (p. 93). "The heart of the book is the alphabetical entries on individuals, institutions and organizations that contributed to African American religion. The entries are written by well-informed scholars and are accompanied with very helpful bibliographies. The twentieth-century looms large in the selection, but the choices seem very representative and complete. This book is highly recommended for every library's reference section" (p. 94).
