Reformation Heritage Books

Sale price $6.99 Regular price $10.00

'This well chosen selection from Lemuel Haynes's writings represents a significant part of the earliest African-American engagements with the Reformed theological tradition. In that tradition Haynes and his black contemporaries, both American and British, found a language of justice and inspiration that allowed them to criticize slavery and racial prejudice, and to offer a Christian vision of a free society. 'May We Meet in the Heavenly World' can be recommended to students of Christian theology and of American history. John Saillant, author of Black Puritan, Black Republican: The Life and Thought of Lemuel Haynes, 17531833
