Description

Many regard Christianity as a faith that, through promises of paradise in the hereafter, lulls its adherents into a state of passive acceptance of injustice. However, this book lays bare the undeniable fact that from the time that Africans were first enslaved, Christianity has not only been a source of strength that has enabled them to survive, but it has also been the fuel for rebellion and insurrection. African-rooted spirituality prepared enslaved Africans and their descendants to take the slavemaster's warped Christian doctrine and transform it into a medium for a pure relationship with God. Understanding that their earthly oppression emanated from Hell, enslaved Africans and their descendants aimed their resistance not only at human tormenters, but also at Satan himself. This spiritual warfare caused many an African to sing: "Ole Satan is mad and I am glad, missed a soul he thought he had, and I ain't got tired yet."
