Is the black church dead?


A New York Times article follows up on the recent provocative article by Eddie S. Glaude Jr., a religion professor at Princeton, called “The black church is dead.”

I’d be interested to hear especially from African-American readers of this blog whether there is truth in Glaude’s charges. Certainly I’ve heard for some time that this community is struggling with the pernicious health-and-wealth doctrine. But has all social action gone by the boards in black churches? Is the church really no longer a cohesive institution among African-Americans?
