"Black Men Worshipping analyzes the discursive spaces where Black masculinity is constructed, performed, and contested in American religion and culture. It judiciously considers the anxiety that emerges from Black male negotiations with these constructions, placing fictive literary and film narratives in conversation with the non-fictive narratives of controversial and popular religious personalities such as Donnie McClurkin and T.D. Jakes"-- Provided by publisher.

Black Men Worshipping places fictive literary narratives such as Uncle Tom's Cabin and In My Father's House, and film narratives such as The Green Mile in dialogue with the non-fictive narratives of popular African American figures Bishop T. D. Jakes and Pastor Donnie McClurkin in an effort to provide a snapshot of the complex constellation of issues involved in black male Christian embodiment"-- Provided by publisher.
